Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery to Display Trump’s Portrait Before Inauguration

The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. will display President-elect Donald Trump’s portrait.

The portrait of Trump is set to go on display at the Smithsonian gallery on Jan. 13, 2017 and will be shown for rest of the month, the Washington Examiner reports.

The portrait “shows Trump tossing an apple up with his right hand”; it was taken by photographer Michael O’Brien in 1989.

The museum acquired the piece, part of a Trump portrait collection, in 2011.

In 2014, President Obama was the first sitting president to have a portrait created from 3D printed scans.

A portrait of President Obama also went on display for the 2009 and 2013 inaugurations, as well as a tapestry of the president for the 2013 inauguration.

The portrait was created by Shepard Fairey and it was based on the “Hope” poster, while the tapestry was created by Chuck Close as part of a campaign fundraiser.
