The painted portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were unveiled in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Both paintings are remarkable. Obama's portrait looks as if it belongs to an Arthurian legend. There is something magic going on there.

The emotion, which is the subtitle in both works, is only a further indication of the loss of empathy most feel since January 20, 2017. 

The resemblance of President Obama's portrait to Nicholas Hiliard's The Young Man Among the Roses is mesmerizing!
