The new portrait by a prominent American artist of Hillary Rodham Clinton, titled “The Beautiful,” will be unveiled in New York on Tuesday night.
It is a portrait that will represent a new phase of the former first lady’s career, and it has already received criticism from her political opponents.
The portrait was painted in 2013, after Clinton left office and the United States of America and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, were forced to resign from the White House in 1993.
The portrait, which is on loan to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, has been widely praised.
But critics have expressed their disapproval.
In a blog post titled “How to see Clinton in the new ‘The Beautiful’ portrait,” The Washington Post’s Ellen Nakashima said the portrait “is not a portrait of a woman who is not Hillary Clinton, and does not represent her.”
“It is a picture of a man who is Hillary Clinton,” Nakashim wrote.
“As Hillary Clinton has said, the work is about her.
But it is also about her husband and about us all.
The work is also an homage to a woman with many flaws and a very difficult path to success.”
The New York City artist behind the painting, Amy Dyer, told ABC News in an interview that she had been working on the portrait for a couple of years and had been trying to convey the complexity of Clinton’s life and work.
“She had so many challenges in her life, her career, her family, her friends and her supporters, and to have this portrait made in her image is so powerful, and is an affirmation that she has always been who she is,” she said.
Dyer, who was born in Queens, New York, and raised in the Brooklyn borough of Brooklyn, said she had hoped to have the portrait completed by this summer.
She was working on a portrait titled “Pablo Picasso: The Man and the Woman” when she got the call from a museum director who had seen the new painting and wanted to collaborate with Dyer on it.
Dyer said she wanted to “build a relationship with the public” about the new work and hoped to give the public a portrait to see that she and her team had been able to make.
“It was important to me to have a strong connection to the public, and I wanted to make sure that people saw that the work that I had done was actually the work of Amy Dyers,” she told ABC.
“And I also wanted to connect to the Clinton family.”
The new portrait was originally commissioned by Dyer in 2013 and will be on display at the museum until November 2019.
The painting is entitled “The New Clinton” and was done in collaboration with the artist’s daughter, Emily Dyer.
Dyers, a native New Yorker, grew up in Brooklyn and attended Cornell University in New Yorks.
Her work is influenced by the work and life of Pablo Picasso, and has been exhibited around the world since 2007.
