Hang it in the Louvre.

After fans came out in droves to question the legitimacy of an impressive Bob-Ross-style painting that Kim Kardashian claims her daughter made, Kardashian’s best friend has come forward to say that 7-year-old North West really is the artist.

Tracy Romulus, whose daughter Ryan is also best friends with North, said the kids take a serious art class, which is how North perfected her skills.

“Both girls are in art class together and learning oil painting techniques from an instructor,” Romulus explained in an Instagram Story. “They spend weeks at a time on a single painting and are incredibly proud of themselves once they complete a project.”

Romulus said North and Ryan follow a curriculum, but “the works are original, starting from a blank canvas and each child’s interpretation.”

Romulus called for people to stop spreading negativity and “doubts on a child’s ability.”

“It’s people like you who keep a children [sic] from dreaming big or reaching their fullest potential,” she ended the note.

Romulus also shared a photo on Instagram of her own daughter’s impressive work.

Eagle-eyed social media users doubted the legitimacy of the painting given North’s young age and the fact that her signature appeared to be Photoshopped onto the canvas.

Kardashian hasn’t commented on her daughter’s painting since first publishing the pic.
