Cherie Blair Nude!

Euan Uglow - Striding Nude, Blue Dress (1972)According to ArtDaily (title link) this sketch by Euan Uglow depicts Cherie Blair née Booth aged 22 in the semi-nuddy. It's title is Striding Nude, Blue Dress (1972). Supposedly the reason it doesn't look much like Cherie is that she didn't have time for all the sittings, and a stand-in was used. A more likely explanation is that it's a lousy likeness. See for yourself. You'll find it in the Browse & Darby gallery, London, Euan Uglow - Drawings and Paintings, until 17 April (CLICK).
