If Catch-22 Characters were Famous Paintings, Part II

I had so much fun with last week’s post that I decided to continue finding famous paintings to match my visions of the characters in Catch-22. This week, I present to you the star-crossed lovers (kind of) Lieutenant Nately and Nately’s whore (I’m sorry, she doesn’t have a name!)

Lieutenant Nately – 

You are a Nately, and the Natelys have never done anything for their money

Nately’s Whore – 

Nately had spent the last thirty-two hours at twenty dollars an hour with the apathetic whore he adored, and he had nothing left of his pay or of the lucrative allowance he received every month from his wealthy and generous father. That meant he could not spend time with her anymore. She would not allow him to walk beside her as she strolled the pavements soliciting other servicemen, and she was infuriated when she spied him trailing her from a distance.

I have about 100 pages left of the book, and I really don’t want it to end!
