Queen Cleopatra, paperback cover, 1962
Gouache on board
20.5 x 13 in.
This illustration appeared on the cover of Talbot Mundy's novel, Queen Cleopatra, Ace Books Star #K-149, 1962.
"Though she knew she could not stop Rome's Conquest of Egypt, Queen Cleopatra considered to conquer Egypt's conqueror. From her first momentous meeting with Caesar, she matched her wits and feminine wiles against his cunning and male arrogance. Cajoling, flattering, sometimes yielding-using all the many tricks of her charm and womanliness -- Cleopatra played the risky game of love and intrigue with the ruler of Rome."
A copy of the paperback is included with this lot.
From the Frank Collection.
