This Technicolor lithograph from KLM features something we’ve seen before—a semi-transparent overlay that provides coverage for the model. But all you have to do is lift the glassine top layer et voila!—instant nude. We’re pretty sure these were first done in France, as we showed you here, here, here, and in a couple of other places. Those examples date from 1951 and 1952. The above lithograph is originally from 1951, but it was published without the overlay. We think the nightie was added sometime in the mid-1950s. The model is unidentified.
Edit: Boom! We never quit! Here it is October 2022 and we've just learned that this is Karin Lane, a popular model who posed for photographers such as Irving Klaw. We'll share more from her soon.
