The art world has seen many iconic depictions of America’s first families. One can see a marvelous gallery on the website of the White House Historical Association, showing portraits of every president’s wife: Jackie Kennedy gets the most glamorous portrayal to date. At present, though, the collection is incomplete: the Association does not yet feature Melania Trump, wife of the Donald.

As an established connoisseur of art, Cockburn thought he might do them a favor by compiling the finest images of Trump family members the internet had to offer. Any of them would look delightful hanging in the corridors of the West Wing.

The First Lady

During her husband’s first term, Melania has donned a number of iconic outfits, some of which inspired our artists.

Several of the portrayals of Melania have a Slavic flavor, conflating her Slovenian background with the Russiagate conspiracy.

While others choose to accentuate her features…

…or her emotions.

The First Daughter

Like her mother-in-law, Ivanka Trump has a background in modeling, and therefore is a natural muse to creative types. But it seems one of her fans may have a slightly exaggerated idea of her figure…

Despite America being without a king since 1776, some illustrators can’t help but imagine Ivanka as a princess, whether it’s Daenerys Targaryen or Jasmine from Aladdin.

The president’s youngest son has developed a large following in Japan. As well as the drawing above, he’s been the star of a manga comic over there since 2016.

The really weird stuff

A couple of artists see a parallel between Ivanka and Emma Frost from the X-Men comics. You can’t help but wonder whether it would be practical for a mutant supervillain to go around with her midriff exposed.

Those of you who examined Cockburn’s Donald Trump fan art exhibition may recall the work of monstermaster13, who specializes in digitally rendered anthropomorphic pieces. Here are two more, showing what Ivanka and Melania would look like as koalas.

Ever thought there was something of the supernatural about our First Lady? These two artists clearly do, depicting her as a witch and a vampire respectively.
