Yes, yes they are.

His portrait at least looks like him, though way too flooded with the garden surrounding him. I understand that the flowers have significance (city flower of Chicago, state flower of Hawaii, and representative flower of his father's Kenya) but I'd have rather seen three small bushes of the flowers/plants in a more traditional setting, then to have his chair literally in a jungle.

And her portrait looks like a really decent best in show competitor for a high school art class, though I'm not exactly sure who the subject of the portrait is. Unless they went off a photo of Michelle from high school herself, that's a completely different model.

LBJ's was the first to take it outside of a stuffy library/office setting. Reagan's by far is the best aesthetically pleasing overall to me, although Carters looks like a freaking photograph. Bush the First looks like a candid shot (he's holding some random piece of legislature and looking kind of sideways at the artist). And I actually like the way Bush the Second's portrait turned out, with the setting of the oval office but not the traditional "behind the desk" shot you usually see of the oval office.

jhill icon NEW: His seems to be fine. I actually like it. Hers looks nothing like her. How does that painting resemble this at all?

UTAuley icon NEW: You disgust me. Seriously, you have to use the ultra-right-nutjob "Man Face" image for Michelle when you know there are millions of beautiful images of the former first lady. My point was simply that this portrait doesn't look like her. (nm)

jhill icon NEW: Huh? The only unflattering picture I've seen of her is when the Tabloids show pictures of her weight gain. And those were probably fake. You're trying way to hard to be offended.

UTAuley icon NEW: Oh please, do a Google search of that image and try to tell me you never saw it used before for anything but the conspiracy theorists who claim Michelle is a man. That's the #1 image they use all the time. (nm)

jhill icon NEW: I have never heard of a conspiracy therapy that Michelle Obama is a man. The 3 people in the room with me have never heard it before. Now that you mention it, I'll check with infowars to see if it's legit or not. (nm)

UTAuley icon NEW: So much fail...that image is by Kehinde Wiley and is of Judith & Holofernes. I'm not sure what "roles reversed" you're referring to, unless you mean if it was a white Judith cutting the head off a darker skinned Holofernes...

jhill icon NEW: Roles reversed means if Trump hired a painter that clearly showed a white woman cutting off a black womans head of a biblical story when the races weren't clear $#!+ would hit the fan.

96GradAlum icon NEW: Yeah ... I'm not fond of them either. But, he's history so I don't really spend time thinking about the past ... Now the current Narcissist in Chief is a different matter.

Puget Ute icon NEW: Surely you realize that these are neither official nor permanent? These are part of a larger, touring exhibit of various presidents and First Ladies and were painted by various artists. (nm)

GUBA icon NEW: I don't mind them. They are different that's for sure. The portrait of Michelle Obama reminds me a bit of Frida Kahlo's style. (nm)
