Yesterday, Kim Kardashian proudly showed off her Christmas gift from her rapper fiance - a tan Hermes leather handbag customised with a nude painting by famous contemporary artist, George Condo.
She posted a photograph of the handbag on her Instagram account, captioning it with a series of hashtags, including '#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy'.
Kanye and Condo have known each other for several years after the rapper contacted the New York-based painter in 2010, asking him to create a series of paintings for his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Condo has been prominent in the art world for over three decades, and is heralded as being instrumental in the international revival of painting from the 1980s onward.
