    Description

    Edrien Nurse Janice's Dream by W.E.D. Ross Dustjacket Original Painting (Avalon Books, 1984). A really special entry in the exhaustive Avalon series of romance novels: Author Ross, one of the most prolific of the last century, inspired painter Edrien, here, to an outpouring of seething passion -- all within the boundaries of good taste, of course. (Ross' more than 300 books also include the Dark Shadows teevee spinoffs.) This example of Edrien's artistry contains two paintings in one: A front-cover image, at right, blended with a book-spine image at left. The smaller figure was designed to appear alone when the book would have been shelved. Seen in this original state, the art takes on a haunting subtext. Opaque watercolors (dry-brush effects) on illustration board. Image area, 9.75" x 12.25". Includes title-card overlay and proof copy. Light toning. Excellent condition.
