An infamous nude of Donald Trump has attracted bids of over £100,000 after it went on display at the Maddox Gallery in Mayfair, London, last week, but the artist is being anonymously threatened with legal action if she sells it, due to its resemblance to the Republican presidential hopeful.

The piece by Illma Gore, titled Make America Great Again, depicts Trump with a small penis. It went viral in February after the artist published it on her Facebook page and has since been censored on social media sites and delisted from eBay after the anonymous filing of a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice threatening to sue Gore.

The Maddox Gallery in London offered to exhibit the painting after galleries in the US refused to host the piece due to security concerns following threats of violence from Trump’s supporters. Hundreds of visitors have queued to see the work.

Gore said: “The reaction, especially in the UK, has been incredibly supportive. Everywhere apart from America has been great. Who knew it would be such a big deal? I think an artist’s job is to take the times we’re living in and then set the scene. It is a representation of where we are.”

The LA-based artist has received thousands of death threats and travelled to the UK to escape the frenzy, agreeing to allow Mayfair to manage the sale of the controversial painting, now priced at £1m.

Cordelia de Freitas, Maddox gallery director, said: “It only really got out of hand when Donald Trump referenced it in a debate, which sums up Trump and his ego. From there, everyone wanted to see this image.”

Gore believes her work inspired Marco Rubio’s comments about the size of Trump’s hands at a Virginia rally in late February, where he said: “And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”

On 3 March, Trump responded: “[Rubio] referred to my hands, if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there is no problem. I guarantee.”

The size of Trump’s hands dominated the Republican primaries that week, and was even discussed at an editorial meeting with the Washington Post, where he defended his comments.

Trump’s sensitivity about his hands is believed to date back to Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter’s description of him as a “short-fingered vulgarian” in the 1980s.

Gore states she will donate her part of the fee for the painting to the charity Safe Place for Youth, a homeless shelter in Los Angeles.

Illma Gore said she received an anonymous call from someone claiming to be on Donald Trump's campaign team

The artist behind a nude picture of Donald Trump has been threatened with a lawsuit if she sells it.

Illma Gore's painting of the US Republican hopeful, which is displayed at the Maddox Gallery in London and depicts Trump with a small penis, caused huge controversy after a picture of the work went viral on Facebook.

She told the Independent she received a call from an anonymous number last week threatening legal action if the piece was sold.

"They claimed to be from Trump's team," she said.


But Ms Gore is not intimidated by the threats and said she would still go ahead with a sale and had planned to donate a protion of the money to Safe Place for Youth, a charity which supports homeless young people.

"It is my art and I stand by it. Plus anyone who is afraid of a fictional penis is not scary to me," she said.

Make America Great Again, which has been valued at £1m, was banned in the US and the artist says she has received numerous death threats from pro-Republican supporters.

The painting, which was made public in February, has been censored on social media and had to be taken down from eBay after previous threats to sue Ms Gore under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.


"People put so much power into what genitals should be or look like. If you take away this man's face for example, you get a painting of a typical body figure you will learn in any fine arts course.

"But once you put Donald Trumps face on the body, it leaves a specific connotation to it all, dependent on whether you like him or not. It really shouldn't matter. Basically you can be a massive p***k despite what is in your pants!" she told the Independent.

After her work was taken off eBay, Ms Gore pledged to re-list her work and donate $100 to the Democrat Party every time it was taken down again.
