"Tatiana" sells at auction

Stephan Bäckman reports on his excellent James Bond blog that an original painting of Tatiana Romanova by Richard Harvey sold at auction today for $594. Here's the image and description from the Swann auction website.

"Tatiana." Chalk and airbrush on paper showing a voluptuous woman lounging in bed, as James Bond, seen reflected in the mirror above the headboard, dons his robe. 394x559 mm; 15 1/2x22 inches, sight size. Unsigned but with publisher's label on verso. Illustration for "From Russia with Love" by Ian Fleming, published by The Reader's Digest in the 1980s; chosen and exhibited at The Society of Illustrators. Archivally matted and framed.
