The former First Lady Michelle Obama also had a stunning painting to mark her moment in history along with her husband’s.

The artists chosen to paint the couple have already made a huge mark in the art community, Kehinde Wiley painted Barack, and Amy Sherald created Michelle’s artwork.

Handpicked by Obama himself, Wiley reflected on the honour with The New York Times before the big reveal: “I’m excited about it: It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to be, like, boom!”
