Lot 0017
Original nude, erotic, 35mm slide features Janice Kane taken in 1974 by Bob Guccione. Lot comes with June 1976 Penthouse Magazine, which features Janice Kane on the cover in Pet of the Year Play-offs. The included slide is from the photoshoot used for her pictorial.Model:
At twenty-one, Janice finds that her life is underscored by her commitment to personal liberation, men, and the act of making love. "I adore long, drawn-out foreplay, like kisses on the back of my neck, along my spine...I go wild. I get shivers all over." Naturally, watching Janice's perfect 36-24-36 shiver is a pleasure many men wish for. Still, despite all of her unbridled sesuality, Janice is cautious about the sort of men she dates, admitting only to having a lifelong, enduring attraction for mature men with "hairy chests, small curved bottoms, and the kind of sensitive, penetrating eyes that look right through you."
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman’s magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors.

Although Bob Guccione's formal training amounts to a one-month stint at the Art Students League, his entire life has revolved around the art world since the age of 5, when his aunt gave him a book of impressionist reproduction. As a young man living in Europe and North Africa, he furthered his artistic pursuits by painting and sketching for over 20 years. His sense of light, form, and movement can be attributed to the past 30 years he has spent behind the camera lens. Finally his lifelong acquisition of old-master, impressionist and post-impressionist works has greatly influenced his use of inert color. Although he is known primarily as a businessman, and owner of GMI and its 17 publications, he states that "my greatest passion has always been art." Featured Video:
