ORIGINAL VINTAGE NUDE of Chinese American burlesque star Noel Toy by James R. This is a beautiful watercolor by the artist. The beauty depicted is wearing army green and on the pelvis area looks to be a military badge.It measures 28 x 22. Doing a basic search of his work this is by far the raciest that I could find.

Toy's parents opened a laundry in Inverness, California, where they were the only Chinese residents. She performed her routines at the Stork Club and other venues in New York City, before returning to San Francisco, where she was most famous at the Forbidden City nightclub.  In her later years, Toy had many small parts in films and television, including a role in Big Trouble in Little China and frequent portrayals of Korean villagers in MASH. Toy met and married a soldier and actor named Carleton Young in 1945, who became enamored with the dancer after seeing her perform at Latin Quarter nightclub in New York.They remained married until her husband's death in 1994.
