Cattrall to strip to save painting from auction

world Updated: Nov 24, 2009 11:01 IST

Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall is preparing to sizzle the art world again as she's stripping off for a second time to
help keep a classic Renaissance painting in the UK.

Last year, Cattrall shed her clothes to recreate Titian's Diana and Actaeon in a bid to raise awareness of the British National Gallery's campaign to stop the artwork being sold off to a private foreign bidder.

Catrall's move helped boost the USD 50 million needed to buy the piece on behalf of Britain and now she is stripping again to keep another Titian work in the country.

Cattrall will pose naked again for a new take on the painter's Diana and Callisto canvas.

The actress, who was born in England, was prompted to help with the cause after the Scottish government refused to pay for the artwork to remain in an Edinburgh gallery.

"Kim is committed to do whatever she can to keep the second Titian on public view," A rep for Cattrall said.
