The US National Portrait Gallery has unveiled portraits of former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama.
Both images were painted by African-American artists who were personally chosen by the Obamas.
The portraits were unveiled to the public at the gallery in Washington, which is part of the Smithsonian group of museums.
A second and different set of portraits of the former first couple will eventually hang in the White House.
Barack Obama’s portrait was painted by Kehinde Wiley — an artist best known for his vibrant, large-scale paintings of African-Americans.
The portraits will be officially installed and available for public viewing starting on February 13.
