An exhibition featuring the works of artist Elizabaeth Peyton includes an oil painting of  First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughter Sasha, reports the Associated Press.      

        Unveiled Wednesday at the New Museum on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, “Michelle and Sasha Obama Listening to Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention” depicts the little girl reclining on her mother’s lap as Michelle Obama listens intently to her husband accepting the Democratic nomination at August’s convention in Denver.      

       The painting is part of a larger exhibition of Peyton’s work that opened last month and will run through Jan. 11. It was painted in August from a photograph and added to the exhibition Wednesday, a day after Obama was elected president.       

       The portrait has already been sold. Museum officials, however, declined to disclose the price or the buyer’s name.      

       The image also appears in this month’s W magazine.
