    Stunning 6' x 4' Oil Portrait of Dixie Carter as Julia Sugarbaker in the Nude. Imagine the shock when the proper Southern lady Julia Sugarbaker, played by Dixie Carter in the hit series Designing Women, discovers this nude painting of herself in an art show of a former teacher. In the 1993 episode "Nude Julia, New York Morning", Julia rushes to the painting to block it from view. As an amusement, the painting has since hung in Ms. Carter's bedroom suite, playfully draped with a chiffon scarf to cover her chest. And now the gilt framed oil painting of Julia resting on a cube draped in blue, green and pink textiles, measuring 6'4" x 4'3" (including frame), is presented in Very Fine condition, maker Warner Brother's Portrait. From the Dixie Carter Collection.
