From AIS Bulletin #153, April 1959: Introducing GENTLE LADY (John Ohl) 36", A silk and satin portrait of a very genteel lady. Standards are flesh cream, blushed pink. Falls further blended with orchid and lavender, but so ethereally pastel as though dusted daintily with a powder puff. Net $15.00. Melrose Gardens.
