Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
And as millions tuned in to behold on Sunday, a brief glimpse of the artwork on a White House wall caught the eye of many.
President Trump - viewers spotted - has a painting of himself sitting round a table with past Republican presidents including Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon.
Independent Journal Review editor Josh Billinson was among those on Twitter to note the painting's presence.

Called The Republican Club, the artwork was created by Andy Thomas. The artist, who lives in Missouri, United States, was "ecstatic" to discover his art displayed in the White House, .
Republican congressman Darrell Issa reportedly gave it to the President.
"A lot of times gifts aren't really hung up, they're just pushed into a closet somewhere," Mr Thomas said.
"To find out it's actually hanging is really a treat."
