The Photo that Almost Broke the Internet. Little Parker Curry and Michelle Obama.

“Sometimes a picture is worth way more than a thousand words.

Like this photograph of a 2-year-old girl called Parker gazing awestruck at artist Amy Sherald’s portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama.

Ben Hines, 37, from North Carolina, captured the inspiring moment while visiting the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. He shared the image of the girl, who he didn’t know, to Facebook. It’s now going viral.

It was so touching and uplifting for me to see this beautiful child looking at a beautiful portrait of a powerful woman,” Hines told BuzzFeed. “I was so delighted to have been in the right place at the right time.”

Parker’s mother, Jessica Curry, said her daughter “just wanted to stare at” the painting. “She was fascinated.”

Hines’ photograph ended up attracting Sherald’s attention. The Baltimore-based artist said on Instagram that the snap had her “feeling all the feels.”

Sherald recalled how seeing a Bo Bartlett painting of a black man during an elementary school trip made her realize she could become an artist.”


This is for all those who tell me I'm too negative, and never post anything positive. Feast your eyes on this gorgeousness...

This little girl beholding Michelle Obama's portrait is everything that's right when so much feels very wrong. ❤️ https://twitter.com/EvanHandler/status/969461589484056576 

Oh, and that Bo Bartlett painting Michelle’s portraitist Amy Sherald recalled seeing when she was young? I could not suss out which one it was but here is one of his later works.

Stylistically and thematically, Bartlett’s work brings to mind for me Winslow Homer.

Perhaps his most pertinent image for these days is this:

H/T to parakenesis, I went searching for a more likely candidate for the painting Sherald saw when she was young and I found…
