    Description

    Edrien Heiress of Fear by Juanita Tyree Osborne Dustjacket Original Painting (Avalon Books, 1985). Edrien's usual drill for the Avalon Romance line was to compose an image of delicate longings with a hint of mystery, suited to a novel of delicate longings with a hint of mystery. The single-named artist breaks the pattern, here, with a brooding horror piece (reminiscent of Hammer Films' scare-show art) to match Osborne's creepy tale. Everybody on view looks either scared or scary. The image of a hanged doll appears twice, with variations. The technique is a miniaturized version of trompe l'oeil, used in this instance to fool the eye into believing it sees a layered collage with torn edges -- when in fact the surface is uniform. Opaque watercolors (dry-brush effects) on deep-texture illustration board. Image area, 9.75" x 12.25". Moderate age-toning, with marginal adhesive staining. Very Good condition.
