OBAMA: "And that’s what he did. But it’s hard, obviously, to judge something that is a portrait of you but what I can say unequivocally is that I am in awe of this artist’s gifts and what he has given to this country and to the world and we are both very grateful to have been the subject of their attention for this brief moment."
