Walter Molino: Gina Lollobrigida and the Horses (date unknown)

I sure would like to know the story behind this Molino illustration. Maybe he just “cast” Gina in a illustration that had nothing to do with her. Like many of Molino’s illustrations, this seems to have been rendered first in grey, and the color worked over the top in transparent washes. I’ve never seen an original in person so I’m not sure.

In all seriousness, it reminds me of the covers of the old Nancy Drew Mystery books.
