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.
