Harry Barton
Tender Hearted Harlot

1952

$3,950

About

Harry Barton painted this steamy gouache illustration for use as the cover of 1952's Tender Hearted Harlot by Val Munroe. Published as a pulp digest, novella length story that takes place on the San Francisco waterfront and follows the proclivities of the young, bold and beautiful Ginny Parrish who... "is a gambler to the core - but the one thing she won't bet on is love..." Sounds like a real page turner! The painting is in pristine condition and has been nicely matted and framed under glass, a copy of the published digest is included in the sale. Sight Size 11 1/2" x 15 1/2" - Framed 20 1/2" x 25"
