Michelle Obama Depicted As A Topless Slave On Magazine Cover


The cover and article seem contradictory at first glance, don’t you think?

Unsurprisingly, a lot of people are disgusted by the image. Some feel that it sexual Michelle, while others claim that it’s downright racist.

But is the cover just lost in translation? After all, Percheron-Daniels has done nude paintings of other historic characters like Queen Elizabeth, Abraham Lincoln, and even Barack, and there hasn’t been the same type of backlash.

Spanish magazine Fuera de Serie is making jaws drop with its August cover girl: Michelle Obama. And it’s because she’s depicted as a topless black slave.

Artist Karine Percheron-Daniels superimposed Michelle’s face onto Marie-Guillemine Benoist‘s painting “Portrait d’une négresse.” Benoist painted the portrait in 1800 as a social commentary on France’s sexism and racism during the 19th century. Historians also view the piece of art as the beginning of the country’s feminist movement.
