Topless Michelle Obama Portrayed as Semi-Nude ‘Slave’ on Cover of Spanish Mag

Michelle Obama is gracing newsstands across Spain this month– but it’s not her famous arms that are on display.

On the cover of Magazine Fuera de Serie, the first lady’s head is featured on the body of a semi-naked woman, draped in the American flag with a headscarf sometimes associated with slaves.

Althea Legal-Miller for Clutch magazine aptly writes: “Perhaps because it seems so obviously offensive, the mind attempts to rationalize; ‘Did this get lost in translation, or is this as racist as I think?’”

Spanish Magazine de Fuera Shows Michelle Obama as Topless Slave

(An blurred version of the magazine cover for Fuera de Serie)

Miller has more information on the shockingly inappropriate cover:

The magazine cover for the feature article “Michelle Tataranieta De Esclava, Dueña De América” (Michelle Granddaughter of a Slave, Lady of America) is the brainchild of white French/English fine artist Karine Percheron-Daniels.  Her mixed-media portrait superimposes Obama’s head onto the famous art-historical body of an African Guadeloupean female slave painted by French artist Marie-Guilhelmine Benoist in 1800. 

Percheron-Daniels’ portrait, First Lady, was not commissioned for the Spanish magazine cover, but is part of a larger series of “famous nudes” that includes Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, Abraham Lincoln, and President Barack Obama.  In defense of her controversial series, the artist argues that she offers the viewer an “alternative unexpected reality” that allows us to “view famous individuals in a different way.”

Apparently, the Spanish-language article praises the first lady’s accomplishments and deems her the “gran mujer” (great lady) behind the American president.

Nudity involving a first lady is in very bad taste.

Let's not forget that Europeans view nudity very differently than Americans. It's normal to see breasts in commercials on the tv.

I saw that today too...

Some how the slave angle seems wrong.  I find it disrespectful to the first lady.

Well it's a European magazine and they aren't prudes over there so I'm sure the nudity is of no issue.

Secondly, the image may not be deemed "appropriate" by some but the article about her is nothing but praise...
