Is Melania Trump's Official White House Portrait Out Of Focus? Critiquing The First Ladies Portraits

Let’s take a look at the official White House Portrait of Melania Trump (46 not 49) which was reportedly taken on January 20th by REGINE MAHAUX.

Right of the bat the photo does not look sharp in the eyes. You can attempt to zoom in but the White House did not release a full res image, only a small PNG file with no easy to find metadata.

Looking at the other White House Official Portraits for Michelle Obama and Laura Bush you have complete meta data along with high res jpegs to work with.

I personally called the White House and asked for the Photo Department. I was sent to voice mail where I left a message. At the time of this posting I did not get a call back yet.
