A Spanish magazine found it good taste to portray our country’s first African American first lady Michelle Obama as a slave on its cover.
On this month’s cover of Fuera de Serie, the magazine opted to depict an image of the FLOTUS as a topless, enslaved woman.
The First Lady’s face was designed onto the body of the Black enslaved woman show in the 1800 “Portrait d’une négresse” by French artist Marie Guillemine Benist. The painting was taken from the “Famous Nudes” series done by artist Karine Percheron-Daniels.
“With my art, and particularly with my famous nudes’ series I try to offer an alternative unexpected reality to allow the viewer to re-examine his unique subjective experience and general understanding and view the world and people in a different way,” Percheron-Daniels wrote in her series’ description on her website.
