Kissing Fish by Italian Born American Artist Edward Runci (1921 – 1986); Painter, Illustration, Advertising and Pinup Artist who would also sign his work as Maxine Stevens.
This is a fun elegant pinup girl art illustration of a young beautiful reddish-blonde redhead, that is wearing a deep red bear shoulder evening dress and a double gold bracelet on her right hand; that is kneeling on a white carpet.
Her dress that is high on her thighs, reveals her sheer black stockings and garter belts, while she smiles pleasantly at the viewer.
In front of her is a large drum fish bowl that contains two fish that appear to be kissing each other, with the one on the right eyeing the viewer as bubbles rise in the water as they kiss.
