A portrait of former President Donald Trump — while not yet the official oil painting of him — will be on display in the America’s Presidents exhibition in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. when it reopens on May 14.
The portrait, a photograph by Pari Dukovic, shows Trump seated in the Oval Office behind the Resolute Desk, reports The Washington Post. It is taking the place of Kehinde Wiley’s portrait of President Barack Obama in the exhibit.
The Obama painting, along with Amy Sherald’s painting of former first lady Michelle Obama, is heading out on a one-year, five-city tour. Meanwhile, Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” collage of Obama, acquired by the gallery in 2008, will replace the Wiley painting, the Post reports.
