Basel Boris is an original acrylic painting. It is gloriously rendered in high quality acrylic paint on extra strong 18mm thick MDF board.

The image is a tongue-in-cheek depiction of the recently discovered ancestry of Boris Johnson. The story dates back to 1975 when the mummified body of a woman was uncovered during renovations at Basel’s Barfüsser Church. In the decades since, the identity of the woman had remained somewhat of a mystery until new pioneering DNA testing revealed the woman to be that of Anna Catharina Bischoff – a pastor’s wife who also turns out to be Boris Johnson’s X6 grandmother.

Sold as a painting only, Basel Boris will be an excellent addiction, or indeed the start of a wonderfully quirky art collection.
