PHOTO: Sienna Miller Nude Painting Unveiled - By Jonathan Yeo

07 November 2012

A nude portrait of a heavily pregnant Sienna Miller has been unveiled by British artist Jonathan Yeo.

Sienna gave birth to her baby daughter Marlowe in July, and she decided to document her pregnancy by getting naked for Jonathan just a few weeks before her due date.

The portrait has been included in Yeo’s upcoming (I've Got You) Under My Skin exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

Melbourne Cup celebrity fashion 2012!

Writing about the piece, Yeo states, "I wanted an image that epitomised the human body in its most naturally beautiful state to make the sharpest possible contrast with my other paintings in this exhibition, which document patients undergoing cosmetic surgery in a bid to help them conform to societal notions of beauty..."

He added "Certain sections of society are still uncomfortable with the appearance of pregnancy and images of naked expectant mothers are rarely seen."

What do you think of the painting? Check it out in full below!
