"Who Did This?!"
Okay fess up. I know you're out there! I first clapped eyes on this swell piece of art back in the late 1960's. Though I was just a lad,...Stonewall was three years away. I was 16, and prowling porn shops for likely reading material.
"Over 21 Only" my then underage, but horny butt!
Click on the above relic of a freer time for ease of viewing. Btw I spied one of the teaching brothers, a cleric from my religious school at one of these shops in civilian duds one weekend. Youbetcha! Yep he bought a Queer mag'n took it back to the rectory for private holy communion.
He went up 3000 points in my estimation for that!
'But I digress.
The above lovely painting appeared in one of the Lyric/DOM 'zines back in the mid-late 1960's. I think the one with "Peter" on the cover. You remember him,...be still my heart. Nude lad at the beach on the front cover of an over the counter 'zine.
I don't even know how many years you's get for even thinking about such things today.
I digress again.
Who painted that damned picture, and where can we see more of his or her art. It's been over 40 years! Is there an answer to this mystery. The only clue is what was mentioned in the 'zine.
"These door panels were painted for a wealthy patron"
Yeah, but who, who dammit! Who painted them panels, and what happened to him/her.
Any clues out there?
