Naive Watercolor - High Class Brothel Disguised as Elegant Boarding House

1930s-1940s. A 12 1/2" x 19" watercolor that at first appearance gives the impression of an elegant rooming house for young women. Well appointed with refined furnishing of the day, various wall papers and decorative area rugs. But wait, do salacious women lounge on the carpet in slinky streamline revealing clothing or stand around on the carpet poised wearing feather boas and with long handled cigarettes holders; maybe not. Also note the gentleman cozily seated on the sofa hands have disappeared into the flowing robe of his companion. Finally the woman either descending or about to ascend the stairs attired in a revealing outfit with slit to the thigh is accompanied by a tuxedoed dude observing her approvingly. Good color composition and perspective and a charming style that allows the viewer to determine the scene.
