An original oil on canvas by popular artist Hamish Blakely.

On creating this incredible artwork, the artist noted that it is: "Inspired by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres’ iconic ‘The Valpinçon Bather’ painting (1808), which is a tour de force in shading and hue, I considered the exquisite simplicity of this piece alone reason enough to create my own version. The original is so sensitive and so intimate, I did not want my version loaded with graffiti, as with ‘St Narcissus’ and ‘Sweet Venus’. The inclusion of Mickey Mouse was a very last minute decision and seemed to be a good counterpoint to the gentle dignity of the subject. The fact that he is whistling also reflects the model, listening to iTunes through her Bose headphones. The organic tattoo on her lower back is, again, understated, but brings this image unmistakably into modern times."
