I made this composite to show how there could be three versions of any given George Quaintance painting.  He almost always drew or painted his models fully nude for an enhanced sense of realism, only to later paint in clothes or another sort of cover on the final version, as in this set modeled by Zaro Rossi.  Most of the time, clothing of various sorts was used, resulting in some realistic bulges and outlines.  When he first began to sell mass produced copies of his work, color reproduction was so expensive that he distributed black and white versions of his paintings.  This black and white full nude of Rossi is rare, and was probably never commercially distributed.
