London, Feb 7 — English supermodel Kate Moss has got famous street artist Bambi to make a portrait of herself similar to the iconic Marilyn Monroe’s painting by Andy Warhol.
Moss’s agent Leonard Villa confirmed the news saying: “It’s one of the best paintings she’s ever done. It’s a take on Warhol’s iconic Marilyn and I don’t comment on prices but, yes, it’s a five-figure sum.”
Moss, 39, is said to have spent 50,000 pounds on the black and white oil painting highlighting her red lips, reports dailystar.co.uk.
“Kate’s been wanting to commission a Bambi special for months. She plans to hang it in pride of place in her Cotswolds farmhouse. Kate’s country pile has a lot more space than her north London home and she has a room full of art,” a source said.
Monroe’s painting was made by Warhol in the 1960s.
