Black Dahlia: Portrait of ‘Not Elizabeth Short’ for Sale on EBay

black_dahlia_ebay_not_elizabeth_short

An EBay vendor has listed this portrait by Eleanor Merriam Lukits, stating that it “looks like Black Dahlia Elizabeth Short.”

Actually, no. The work appears to be skillfully done, but it’s not Elizabeth Short and doesn’t look like her. But I guess it’s a good sales gimmick. Bidding on this picture of “Not Elizabeth Short” starts  at $49.

    Elizabeth Short? Definitely not. More like a glum Ava Gardner.
