Thanks for posting the story, John-O. Yep, a Bowers original had been on my list for a long time, too. And an exotic nude, even better. Here is some additional info:

The gaffer's tape in the back did not surprise me, because the whole store is what is left of the great prop house "20th Century Props" when it went out of business. And the owner still seems to rent out to movies.

The paintings are not on canvas, but on particle board. Plus the composition of each seems to be balanced for the frame and size they are in. My guess is these are not mural pieces, but were painted as a set for someone's rumpus room, I estimate in the early 50s.
