Provenance Galerie Bruno Bischofberger, Zurich; Private collection, Europe Literature D. Kuspit and L.K. Meisel, Mel Ramos Pop Art Fantasies - The Complete Paintings, 2004, p.145 (illustrated) Catalogue Essay Combining his lovely ladies with jungle animals could be rather grotesque and disturbing; however, with Ramos’s vast sense of humor it brings nothing but smiles.
