(Sadie Dingfelder/For Express) Presidential portraits are usually revealed after a president has left office, but the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery made an exception today when it unveiled a painting of Francis J. “Frank” Underwood, the fictional president played by Kevin Spacey on the Netflix series, “House of Cards.” “Since Francis Underwood doesn’t believe in term limits, I see no reason why it shouldn’t be unveiled now,” Spacey said at a news conference. The larger-than-life painting by British artist Jonathan Yeo shows an imperious Underwood seated in the Oval Office.

“I think that when it’s hung at the right height, you may wonder if I’m about to kick you in the face — which seems appropriate for this particular character,” Spacey said. “Unless it’s borrowed from the gallery by the next [fictional] president,” Yeo said.

It will be absent for 18 months. But by coincidence, a new president is about to be hung on the gallery’s walls.

Underwood is the fictional commander-in-chief played with ratlike cunning by Kevin Spacey in the hit political television drama House of Cards. A 6ft-square portrait of Spacey as Underwood, painted by British artist Jonathan Yeo, was unveiled at the gallery in Washington on Monday night, coinciding with the launch of House of Cards’ fourth season, which premieres on Netflix on Friday 4 March.

Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood is only the fictional president in Netflix's House of Cards, but it increasingly feels like the pretend politician is bleeding through into the real world.

Spacey appeared in character during the Golden Globes in January, and now the Machiavellian monster has his portrait hung alongside actual presidents', in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. The 6-foot picture, painted by British artist Jonathan Yeo, will hang in the gallery's entrance, not far from its "America's Presidents" section. Yeo's treatment pictures Underwood in shades of gray, with lines of darkness obscuring the Oval Office, hinting at TV static and the character's fictional background.

Kevin Spacey, who plays Underwood in the Netflix series House of Cards, was present at the unveiling on Monday, noting, “I think that when it’s hung at the right height, you may wonder if I’m about to kick you in the face—which seems appropriate for this particular character,” the Washington Post reports. Artist Jonathan Yeo undertook the painting, and pointed out the way he tried to make the paint look somewhat pixelated. “We were trying to mimic the formality of an official portrait, but at the same time leave some of the loose lateral brushstrokes to suggest a digital image flickering on a screen.” The painting will go on view for the public on Wednesday, less than 10 days before season four’s March 4 debut on Netflix.

House of Cards seizoen 4: de machtsstrijd tussen Claire en Frank Underwood

Ik zal je de harde, gore waarheid vertellen. Zonder mij ben je helemaal niets.” Keiharde woorden gebruikte president Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) aan het eind van seizoen 3 om zijn ambitieuze echtgenote Claire (Robin Wright) op haar nummer te zetten. Terwijl hij het gezicht van de First Lady met zijn grote hand fijnkneep, alsof ze een stout kind was, verwoordde hij eindelijk wat al die voorgaande seizoenen al onder de oppervlakte borrelde. Hij, Frank Underwood, is de machtigste man op aarde. Met deze cliffhanger eindigde vorig jaar House of Cards, een seizoen dat overigens een stuk minder goed uit de verf kwam dan de voorgaande seizoenen.
