Share via Email Absolut's ad A famous nude image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono that adorned their album cover is to be made into an advert for vodka. The photograph, from the couple's album, Unfinished No 1: Two Virgins, has been bought by Swedish vodka firm Absolut to be used in an American advertising campaign. The picture is the rear cover of the album and shows a naked John and Yoko from behind, with the space in between them altered to represent the shape of an Absolut bottle. The ad will form part of a campaign that puts the Absolut vodka bottle on famous album covers. It is the first time a Beatles picture has been used to promote alcohol.

Display caption Summary A painter based in New York, Currin was first known for his series of pseudo- portraits of young women head and shoulders painted in a deadpan manner. Taken from photographs in high school yearbooks, they were characterised by their bland prettiness and seemingly untroubled sweetness. Their blank gaze and the overall emptiness of the image reproduces a terrifying moment of stillness compared by the artist to the deadly cold stare of Damien, protagonist of the film The Omen , director Richard Donner. Subsequent paintings depict caricatured men and women whose over-large eyes, ruddy cheeks and sentimental expressions suggest the world of the cartoon. Women with balloon-like breasts and slender bearded men act out the traditional fantasies of the white American male as expressed in the kitsch culture of pornography, advertising and magazine photographs. The excessive sickliness of these images contrasts with the emptiness of the personalities portrayed, producing a psychologically unsettling effect.

Thumbnails About The one thing I can do is make a fairly convincing fantasy of happiness. With inspirations as diverse as Old Master portraits, pinups, pornography, and B movies, he paints ideational, challengingly perverse images of women, from lusty nymphs to dour matrons. Consistent throughout his work is the search for the point at which the beautiful and the grotesque are held in perfect balance.
