This painting was first published as half of the cover for Mademoiselle De Maupin by Theophile Gautier (1953)

A Rake’s Search for a Perfect Bed-Mate!

Its second publication, in its present state after minor alterations (the man coming from behind the curtain is gone), was for the novel, Adam and Two Eves by Anonymous (1956)

Unnatural Affection — Or Perverted Hate? The Young Widow Had to Choose Between Them…
A Novel That Speaks Out Boldly On A Taboo Subject

From the back:

Often whispered about—but rarely spoken of aloud—the startling theme of this story concerns Carroll, a pretty young widow. She is taken into the household of a friendly couple, only to find that her caresses are sought not only by the husband—but by his wife … Should warm, lovely Carroll be condemned for yielding both to the love of a married man, and the equally ardent embraces of a voluptuous though twisted woman? The answer is not simple. True, Carroll responds to their needs, yet it is a haunted, tortured experience . . . despite its warped delights, its moments of almost unearthly bliss. Perhaps she is more to be pitied than condemned. For the whole point of this bitterly true novel is that pretty Carroll is the seduced rather than the seducer—the sinned against, rather than the sinner … entirely too attractive for her own good.
Out of her own experience, the anonymous author tears the curtain from one of the gravest threats to modern social morality—the strange love practices trapping unwary girls today, particularly in our larger cities!

Can a girl in the lingerie racket keep her decency even while she sheds her clothes?
A bold, brilliant book, pitilessly revealing the strange temptations besetting two attractive career girls in a business without scruples 

From the back:

How can a business-woman get ahead?
Joyce Pryor liked working for Lingerie Ltd. But it seemed that in return for advancement she was expected to confer her favors upon the men around the place staff executives like Milt Davis and Bud Hutton, and even Kelly, the vice-president. They could not know that Joyce had an unwholesome aversion to members of the male species. She reserved her affections for one of the young secretaries, pert and adorable Doris Baker.
Then the firm began plugging a new item, known as the “Peek-A-Boo Bra.” The sales campaign led to serious complications, including Doris Baker’s surrender to Hutton. That left Joyce out in the cold with the bra, the bra slogans and the bra businessmen . yet she was beginning to feel what were for her strange emotions. Could she, with the help of Milt Davis, yet achieve normal womanhood?
HERE IS A FRESH AND UTTERLY DIFFERENT NOVEL, EXPLORING THE PRESSURES AND TEMPTATIONS WHICH BESET “CAREER GIRLS” IN THE CUT THROAT WORLD OF “THE LINGERIE GAME”!
