To paraphrase an old Disney artist I knew, it's not a picture OF Michelle Obama, it's a picture ABOUT Michelle Obama.

The Obamas Wrest Presidential Portraiture From Its Traditional (White) Trappings

Quote
...Michelle Obama and Amy Sherald, the artist the former first lady carefully selected to paint her official portrait, took the stage. Together, they tugged on one of the fabric coverings until it fell to the ground. The crowd gasped audibly when the larger-than-life painting appeared before them and then broke into enthusiastic applause.

Quote
Sherald described her painting practice as a conceptual one, founded not upon accuracy but imagination. “Once my paintings are complete, the models no longer live in the paintings as themselves,” she told the crowd. “I see something bigger in them, something more symbolic, an archetype. I paint things I want to see. I paint as a way of looking for myself in the world.”
