Art Talk Tuesday: The Obama Portraits Tour

Tuesday, August 9, 2022

The de Young Museum is proud to present the portraits of former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama by artists Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald as part of “The Obama Portraits Tour” organized by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Approximately life-size, the two paintings present a striking contrast to earlier presidential portraits and images of first ladies. Docent Joyce Thorn will share how artists Wiley and Sherald explore complex issues of identity in their work, as well as how portraiture shapes ideas about power, status, and legacy.
