Damien Hirst’s former enterprise supervisor has obtained a £90,000 tax break after donating sketches the controversial artist drew of him to the British Museum.

Hirst, 54, repeatedly doodled photos on placemats of Frank Dunphy, who helped him acquire worldwide fame.

He gave Dunphy the completed items and he donated them to the museum beneath a Authorities programme to encourage philanthropy within the arts. 

He earned the tax break by means of the Cultural Items Scheme, The Each day Telegraph reported.

The pair would meet for breakfast on the Wolseley restaurant in Piccadilly, central London and Hirst sketched the portraits from 2004 to 2010.

In whole, 73 placemats have been donated to the museum. 

Hirst, whose creations embrace a pickled shark and diamond-encrusted cranium, employed Dunphy, 81, as his enterprise supervisor throughout the 1990s and 2000s

The photographs, entitled the Wolseley Drawings, embrace some smeared with meals and low stains from the breakfasts.
