This original gouache painting by Harry Bennett was used as cover art for the Pyramid paperback publication of "Cry Shame" written by Gore Vidal under the pseudonym Katherine Everard. During his early career, Vidal published under several pseudonyms in order to evade the accusation that the rate of his publishing made it impossible for him to be a "serious" literary author. This is a singular opportunity to own an original piece of both illustration art and literary history, from the estate of Charles Martignette.
