The Obamas are returning to the White House. On Wednesday in Washington, D.C. the official presidential portraits of Barack Obama (61) and wife Michelle (58) unveiled, as "CNN" reports. The ceremony in the White House was attended not only by the former President of the USA and the former First Lady, but also by the incumbent President and former Vice-Obama Joe Biden (79) and his wife Jill (71). The two separate portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama will now have a permanent place in the White House.
Michelle Obama was portrayed by US painter Sharon Sprung in a strapless light blue dress on a red sofa. Photos served as templates for both paintings. US President Joe Biden said during the ceremony: "You two have brought hope to millions of people who have been left behind for so long." This is "Obama's presidency's gift to the country and to history."
