Official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama unveiled at the White House

WASHINGTON — As the nation’s first black president, Barack Obama has made history. His official portrait, unveiled at the White House on Wednesday, will do the same.

Robert McCurdy, the artist Obama chose for his portrait, is known for his photorealistic oil paintings with unusually sparse backgrounds in which the subject is holding no props, gestures or smiles.
