A couple of things about this new Presidential portrait:

Image

Firstly, Boris the Brute himself would be proud of that display of manspreading. Even the chair itself seems to have dissolved on his left side. And secondly, what is up with the extra finger on the left hand? What is the artist trying to tell us?

Whatever it is, it's something more subtle than some of his other works, in which the heads of errant Beckys are sliced in a way that would warm the cockles of Uncle FB's heart:

If you stare at the leaves long enough does another image appear? It's got a very 'Magic Eye' look to it.

It is standard practice in portraiture to sacrifice anatomical accuracy at the altar of composition. It is unusual, however, for that sacrifice to make the composition worse.

There's a hint of the 'Cosby pullover' about the colour scheme too.

This fellow is sitting too.

Listen, can we just say that your record in picking winners in what is proving to be discussion worthy is not stellar of late.

I wonder what happened to that.

There was the famous story of Graham Sutherland's portrait of Churchill of course:

He hated it, and it is thought that Lady Churchill burnt it sometime after his death. Certainly no one knows where it is.

Obama has hidden his atrocious taste under a pretty slick set of suits over the years, so he probably thinks this is pretty neat.

I liked Churchill's portrait. It has a "bulldog spirit" about it that I think was meant to be portrayed.

Clementine hated it. No surprise if she disposed of it.

I wonder what Trump's take on them will be. Bet he doesn't mention all the stately, adult-sized hands.

I eased off as he behaved himself towards the end of the year...let's see if he gets back to his old antics in the soup.

I heard the Obama charitable foundation used its own funds to buy the Obama portrait.
Shocking stuff.

Churchill described it as "modern art", which got a huge laugh.
Clementine did indeed burn it.

Maybe a reference to the Trump wall except of course that Obama's wall is carbon neutral and sustainable.
