The Obama Portraits and the History of African American Portraiture

Bellevue High School classmate (class of 1963) Toni Venz sent me this fascinating article about the Obama portraits.  Thanks so much Toni.

I picked up the info on Michelle Obama’s dress and the connections to the Gee’s Bend quilters, but I didn’t know anything about what was going on in Obama’s portrait.

I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did.
