Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala picture
Overview:

Quinn's iris portrait of Leonardo DiCaprio goes on sale to raise money for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in support of the world's natural environment and wildlife.

The auction raised $45 million for charity.

For the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) St Tropez Gala, Quinn has created an iris portrait of the Foundation’s Chairman - Leonardo DiCaprio, which forms part of his ongoing series – We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars. A highly detailed image of DiCaprio’s right iris was captured using a macro lens camera which the artist used as a basis for the oil painting shown here. The artist has made two iris portraits of DiCaprio - one of each eye. The right iris portrait will be sold for the charity and the left portrait will be owned by DiCaprio.
