I am not really sure what is going on here. The painting and the cover are clearly both by Maguire, and both are based on the set of reference photos, and Heritage Auctions is selling them as a set, but the painting is clearly not the same as the image on the cover. Even if the hair and the sheet had been retouched for the cover (which is the kind of thing that happened) the whole pose of the body is slightly different, and the head is looking a different way.
I suspect this is an early draft that was rejected by the publisher, or simply a different scene painted from the same set of reference photos. Either way, a lovely set.
