An iconic portrait of President Donald Trump sitting at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office has been installed by The National Portrait Gallery in America’s Presidents exhibition.

The Smithsonian museum closed due to the coronavirus in November 2020 but is scheduled to reopen on May 14

Photographer Pari Dukovic took the photo of Trump for TIME Magazine.

The 2017 photo is a “stand-in until his official portrait is completed,” The Insider reported.

The Washington Post reported:

When the National Portrait Gallery reopens on May 14, visitors will have the first opportunity to see a President Donald Trump portrait in the popular America’s Presidents exhibition.

Pari Dukovic’s photograph of the former president depicts him seated in the Oval Office behind the Resolute Desk.

It has taken the place of Kehinde Wiley’s portrait of President Barack Obama, which, starting in June, will go on a year-long, five-city tour with Amy Sherald’s painting of former first lady Michelle Obama.

Shepard Fairey’s “Hope,” a collage acquired by the gallery in 2008, replaces the Wiley painting.

“There’s always a sense of transition when we install a new presidential portrait,” Dorothy Moss, the gallery’s curator of painting and sculpture, said of the exhibit.

“We are a museum that reflects art history and biography, and we are able to celebrate the presidents with portraits that are historical documents."

And this was Barack Obama’s ridiculous portrait, if you remember...

Last year, the portrait of former President Bill Clinton was removed from the White House Grand Foyer and placed in a room that is used for storage.

The White House at the time moved the painting along with a portrait of former President George W. Bush.

The official portraits of President Donald Trump's predecessors were pulled from their prominent positions in the entrance hall to the home in recent days and will be kept out of view of visitors.
