    A Cristina Ferrare Prop Painting from "The Impossible Years." Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968. Oil on canvas, depicting the actress as "Linda Kingsley" in a provocative nude pose; seen in the funny sequence when "Linda's" boyfriend presents the scandalous painting to her father, "Jonathan Kingsley" [as portrayed by David Niven], at a pool party as well as in other scenes. (Please note there is surface dirt on the entire paining plus a small tear to the right of the foot, all of which can be fixed if taken to a restorer.)
    40" x 48"

    This painting was originally sold at the now-famous 1970 MGM Auction where the current consignor bought it.
