Woman in red dress, onlooking man with top hat in hand.

Paperback book cover: Savage in Silk, by Donna Comeaux Zide;
Publisher: (Warner Books), 1978

Mixed media: gouache, colored pencil, etc., 7.75 x 4.75" not signed.

Condition is good: a small nick; matted, but not framed.

This work was submitted by the artist as a comprehensive sketch, but art director Eugene Light ran it as a finished paperback book cover! [Note the extra bronzing of skin tones added in production.]

From the hell-is-paved-with-good-intentions dept.: the heroine of this romance novel is native American (though she doesn't much look it), hence the ‘savage’ in the title. Ouch.
