Nude Portrait of Model Unveiled
LONDON (AP) _ Art gallery visitors can see Jerry Hall from a whole new angle, now that a nude portrait of the pregnant supermodel has been unveiled in Lucian Freud’s new collection.
The postcard-sized painting shows the wife of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger lying on one side, pregnant with son Gabriel, who is now 6 months old.
``She wondered whether I’d like to paint her in this condition and it was too generous an offer to refuse,″ Freud recently said of his painting, which was unveiled Tuesday at London’s Tate Gallery. ``I’m especially glad I did it because it led to my now painting her with her baby.″
The painting and 24 others by Freud will be on display until July 26.
