The Ladies Supper Painting Reveal

Building on Bird in Hand’s ongoing support of the arts, artist James Cochran (aka Jimmy C) best known for his urban narrative paintings, was commissioned to create a contemporary and unique interpretation of Da Vinci’s infamous Last Supper painting. The artwork celebrates women; their role in creation, place in the modern world and contribution to creating a harmonious, peaceful society.  The artist has created an artwork which is brave and progressive, one of old world elegance, with a beautiful, ethereal quality. As inspiration for the artwork, a special dinner was held in The Gallery restaurant, allowing the artist and the thirteen subjects of the portrait to come together.

The 3 piece Jimmy C painting was revealed to the subjects and special guests by the artist himself, right before the Bernard Fanning concert on Valentines Day, February 14 2015.
