Doris Lee
Probably this has been seen by the list, but I'm new here and never have,
before a friend posted it on Facebook. From Wikipedia: "[Doris] Lee's
1935 painting *Noon* is briefly described in Vladimir Nabokov
<>'s classic 1955 novel *Lolita
<>*: "... she [Lolita] wanted to know
if the guy noon-napping on Doris Lee’s hay was the father of the
pseudo-voluptuous hoyden in the foreground.”

The painting is attached.
