Elvgren Venus: Reclining Oriental Nude in Studio (1947)

We have featured quite a few Gil Elvgren paintings on Venus Observations but this picture appeared in a post of The Seduction of Venus.  We only had a very poor image of it but thought it was such a splendid picture that we posted it anyway.  Now at last we have found a better scan.  Elvgren liked this picture so much it hung in his studio for many years and it is one of only a few such art nude oil paintings he did,
