The simplest way is to reimplement paintEvent() like this:

def paintEvent(self, event):
  painter.drawPixmap(0, 0, myPixmap)

It's also useful to override the __init__() method, in order to avoid flicker:

def __init__(self, parent, name):
  QWidget.__init__(self, parent, name,
    Qt.WStyle_Customize | Qt.WRepaintNoErase | Qt.WResizeNoErase)

You could also use a QLabel instead of a QWidget and simply call 
QLabel.setPixmap(myPixmap) :-)

Hope this helps,
