This lurid and bold gouache illustration painting by Fred Rodewald was created as cover art for the January, 1949 edition of Ecstasy Novel Magazine, which printed in full the novella length story "Paula Has A Price!" by pulp author Peggy Gaddis (writing under the pseudonym Perry Lindsay). Included with the painting is a published high grade edition of the published digest book. Nicely matted and framed under glass and ready to hang. The image gives a peek at a curvaceous working girl engaged in the world's oldest profession meeting a trick in the darkness at the edge of town. Nicely matted and framed under glass and in a fine state of original conservation, a copy of the paperback accompanies your purchase.
