|Henry Taylor, untitled, 2020. The Broad. (c) Henry Taylor|
In the wake of MOCA's Henry Taylor show, the Broad has acquired its first painting by the artist. It's part of a group of off-kilter portraits/history paintings of Michelle and Barack Obama. The Broad's untitled 2020 work shows Michelle standing in a yard behind a gray horizontal line; the Capitol building; a group of three men waiting to cross MICHELLE S[TREET]; Barack at a podium; a wonkish, gray-haired man contemplating a bulbous black form labeled TAXES.
The two-canvas painting measures 7 by 10 ft. overall and is on view.
