The acrylic on canvas painting of the former PM shows him in dramatic pose, taking a 'selfie' photo as he reflects on his career.
"He suggested the selfie concept," said artist Eric Tring RA. "With Tony being such a past master of pose throughout his career, I snapped at the idea. However, after spending several hours with him on sittings for the painting, the red pupils, which echo the Tory 'demon eyes' campaign posters of 1997, were my idea."
"I took several reference photos of him taking his own picture. Oddly, every single one shows exactly the same picture on the phone. Isn't technology wonderful?"
