Erotic abstract watercolor painted by the burlesque queen to be sold on Ebay

An erotic abstract watercolor painted by burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee will be sold at auction on Ebay.

The painting, of breasts in a bowl, was given to Julio, her husband at the time, as a present (Gypsy married Julio de Diego in 1948). The painting was left to her friend and chauffer Boyd Bennett who in turn sold the painting in the mid 1970’s.

The painting measures 13.5” x 11” and is mounted on a wooden frame. Images of the painting and additional information about this piece of celebrity memorabilia can be seen at prior to the auction.
