Sienna Miller Nude Nude Pregnancy Portrait Unveiled

Sienna Miller posed for Yeo's collection mere weeks before giving birth to her daughter, Marlowe.

A nude portrait of a very pregnant Sienna Miller has been unveiled as part of a Berlin exhibition by famed artist Jonathan Yeo. The exhibit, (I’ve Got You) Under My Skin, is mainly focused on patients undergoing cosmetic surgery.

The exhibition’s catalog explains, “This portrait of Sienna was painted a few weeks before the birth of her baby Marlowe … 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.”

Miller, 30, posed for the painting just weeks before giving birth to her baby girl, Marlowe.

The Berlin exhibition, Yeo noted, was the perfect place to unveil the painting. “It made sense to me to unveil this image for the first time in Germany, a country with a very relaxed attitude to nudity, where it is not automatically sexualised or deemed scandalous,” the author commented.

“The power of the painting partly lies in the fact that Sienna is widely regarded as being one of the most naturally beautiful actresses in the world as well as being a fashion icon to a generation of girls,” Yeo added.

Yeo remarks on Miller’s confident expression of her body during pregnancy, and givers her accolades for her boldness. “It is a tribute to her courage and self-confidence that she agreed to sit for this. I can think of many figures whose public currency in part revolves around their appearance, who would prefer to hide themselves away for nine months.”

The British artist, who painted a portrait of Miller in 2010, commented of his latest work, “I hope this painting also captures some of that moment of transition between youth and parenthood – a combination of excitement and trepidation and vulnerability – which is an inevitable part of the cycle of life.”

The full portrait can be seen on Yeo’s website.

    Nice picture of a pregnant young woman. Not so sure about the explanation of why it's supposed to be 'artistic'; just looks like she's a bit tired. Could it be that the 'shock' of seeing her nude is the primary reason for it's artistic appeal? Ignore the nudity (easy as pie for a nudist!) and it's nothing special.

    Have to agree with you All Nudist, and it isn't anything special at all.

    IMO: I've never been fond of incomplete paintings/illustrations.

    In this case, I have to assume, it was left unfinished to focus attention to the nude subject or the fact the subject is pregnant.

    The human eyes will at first be attracted to the brightest spot in the painting, in this case, the highlights on the women's breasts. Now because the subject is human, the eyes will be drawn to the eyes of the subject before looking at the rest of the detail. Finally the eyes rest on the pregnant belly of the subject.

    I love the softness of the brush strokes and the attempt at photo realism. Great attention to shape and muscle tone but the obsessive compulsiveness in me is irritated the painting isn't finished.
