Kim Kardashian has spoken out against those who question her eldest daughter’s artistic talents, after sharing with the world what she has called her “baby masterpiece.”

the reality star posted a photo of an awe-inspiring blue-hued oil landscape – showing a lake, two trees and a snow-capped mountain – to his Instagram Story earlier in the week.

She wrote: “Shout out to all the proud moms who love to show off their baby’s masterpieces.”

Calling the seven-year-old “my little artist North,” she also posted a photo of North holding the canvas and smiling.

However, it wasn’t long before fans wondered if North had painted the painting herself, with one asking, “Please tell us more about the painting, I’m intrigued, is North the new Pablo Picasso? “

Another wrote: “I’m supposed to be at work, but can’t help but think about how North West didn’t paint this.”

Others zoomed in on the signature in the lower right corner of the painting, speculating that it had been photoshopped and therefore was proof that it had not been done by North.

Kardashian, 40, who was unimpressed by those who doubted North’s talent, has now defended her daughter, warning her critics: “Don’t play with me when it comes to my kids !!!”

In a multi-page Instagram story, Kardashian put together a collection of photos, social media posts, and stories about her daughter’s artwork, along with a post reiterating that her daughter was fully responsible for the job.

She wrote: “My daughter and her best friend took a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are encouraged and nurtured.

“North worked incredibly hard on her painting, which took several weeks. As a proud mom, I wanted to share her work with everyone.

“I see opinion pieces in the media and on social media from adult adults breaking down whether my child actually painted this or not!

“How dare you see kids doing awesome things and then trying to accuse them of NOT being awesome!?!?!

“Please stop embarrassing yourself with negativity and allow every child to be BIG !!!

“North West painted that, period !!”

She also shared a photo and video of a Hermès handbag that North painted for her when she was a baby and gave her her first Mother’s Day gift.

Calling the hand-printed canvas bag a “beautiful masterpiece”, she said then she knew “she would be such a great artist”.

Meanwhile, the mother of North’s best friend, Ryan, Tracy Romulus, also championed the work, as did the daughter of North’s art teacher, who said she herself shot similar images when ‘she was a child.

Camryn Frederickson used TikTok to tell fans that her mother – artist Celeste Astor Frederickson – taught North how to paint the board, and that everyone in her class “starts with the exact same paint when they start.”

After the row over North’s talents, American artist Bob Ross – who was the United States’ response to Tony Hart – started trending on Twitter as people compared his work to North West’s.
