    Victor Prezio - Paperback Novel Cover Painting Original Art Group of 4 (c. 1970s). Three of these are from the Gothic Romance cover sub-genre of "Women running from Houses". The fourth features... 'men rowing from boats'? One painting it titled "Winter at Melson's Wards", and it has the largest image area at 15" x 12". Another piece is a study for the finished cover painting of The House on Black Bayou. This one is unusual for the genre, as the woman is actually still in the house that she is running from. The smallest image area is on another one featuring a woman on a seaside rock. It measures 12" x 10.5". All of these are opaque watercolor on illustration board. They have handling wear, and some have pinholes. Condition varies, with most being in Very Good condition.
