About the Item

"Curtis sees so much more in these things than I do, he says this one is terribly obscene. The publication is unknown. Perhaps it was for the New Yorker or Esquire. 13x8 3/4 inches, on 15x10-inch board. Signed "R. Taylor" in the lower-left image and captioned in ink in lower margin. The work is unframed
