September Morn

Fer-De-Lance – Bantam paperback – 1983 printing – beginning of chapter 3 – pages 17-18

Fritz slept up above, across the hall from the plant rooms; my room was on the second floor, the same floor as Wolfe’s, a fair-sized room in front with its own bath and a pair of windows.

… further down the page where Archie is describing his pictures …

Also there was a colored one called September Morn, of a young woman apparently with no clothes on and her hair hanging down in front, but that was in the bathroom.

September Morning

September Morn

In the above picture I don’t see hair hanging down in front of anything, so I wonder if Rex Stout had actually seen this painting or if he was going by hearsay or some newspaper report about it. Anyone have any information about this? Just curious.
