Dodson Betty, Last Tango in Paris, 1973


The series of illustrations was made by Betty Dodson shortly after the movie, The Last Tango in Paris, came out in 1972.  Illustrations were commissioned by Evergreen magazine (Grove Press) and later on were censored  thanks to lawyer's advice that they are too controversial and would get busted by the Justice department. Drawings never saw the light of day. They are probably not complete, I found them scattered on Betty Dodson´s page: http://dodsonandross.com/.
