This is one of Betty's earlier paintings. 

I love her group nudes because you can see something brewing in her work - her nudes are restless looking for more.  In only a few years, Betty would join America's Sexual Revolution, her nudes would start fornicating, and she'd became a feminist icon.

This is one of Betty's early oil paintings done in 1962.  Her bacchanales became orgies - her orgies became group sex - her group sex became feminism and the rest is history.
