"She is lying on a bed of bloody red meat and pink roses, with her face partly obscured by dripping paint but Lara Stone's trademark gap-toothed smile still gives her away.
This portrait of the model by Marc Quinn is going on show as part of the ONE exhibition presented by the Loughran Gallery at NEO Bankside, near Tate Modern from Thursday.
Stone, 29, who is married to comedian David Walliams, right, was pcitured when she was pregnant with her son Alfred. She gave birth in May, the same month another Quinn portrait of her, pregnant, naked and sitting on a bed of meat, was unveiled at the Venice Biennale.
Art by Quinn, who created a gold statue of fellow model Kate Moss in a yoga pose, will feature with work by Damien Hirst, Dave White, Harland Miller, Lara Carew-Jones and Jessica Zoob in the exhibition celebrating the gallery's first birthday. It runs until December 20."
