Kim Kardashian has clapped back at trolls for questioning daughter North West's art skills, insisting she really is responsible for the oil painting Kim had previously shared.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star was forced to defend her 7-year-old daughter from haters, after sharing her painting, a landscape, on Instagram Stories.

Due to it being really quite good, a number of people took to social media to question whether North was responsible for painting the mountain and lake scene, creating memes and writing jokes.

"THERE IS NO WAY A SEVEN YEAR OLD PAINTED THIS," one person wrote on Twitter, while another added, "Please tell me I’m not the only one skeptical of the North West/Bob Ross painting."

Kim snapped at the criticism, later taking to Instagram Stories again to shut down any speculation that North wasn't behind the art. She wrote: "DON'T PLAY WITH ME WHEN IT COMES TO MY CHILDREN!!!" Kim continued:

My daughter and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents and creativity are being encouraged and nurtured. North worked incredibly hard on her painting which took several weeks to complete. As a proud mum, I wanted to share her work with everyone.

"I'm seeing op-e pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my child actually painted this! How dare you see children doing awesome things and then try to accuse them of NOT being awesome!?!?! Please stop embarrassing yourself with the negativity and allow every child to be GREAT!!! NORTH WEST PAINTED THAT PERIOD [sic]."

Only one question remains: is North West the new Picasso?
