The picture, which lie hart given the actress, had won a gold medal from the Painters and Sculptors Club. It showed a woman, nude lo the waist, facing the artist. Miss Janis said the picture was only one of several for which she posed for Withers at the standard modeling rale of $2 an hour, "But it wa.s the only one that showed me as a nude. The others were all in costume," she .saiii. "And this one wasn't all me. Only the head wa.s. Prom the neck down it was someone else." She said it wasn't unusual for artists to work that way. "They may like the face of one model and the body of another am: put them together to make thcii pictures." she said.
