As Old As Cain, by M.E. Chaber

When Robert McGinnis set about painting a cover for the 1971 Paperback Library edition of As Old As Cain, the third of M.E. Chaber’s Milo March mysteries, he imagined actor James Coburn and actress-singer Goldie Hawn as his models. The girl was nude in his original painting, but that image was thought to be too racy, so he added a bra and panties; later he restored the art to its original state (below).
