Tales of the Unexpected: Depart in Peace

Art buff Lionel has a pretty young girlfriend Janet, but jealous Gladys plants seeds of discontent in his mind, hoping to spoil their relationship so that he can have her for himself. He discoveres Royden, who paints only women and uses an unusual technique: he paints them nude, and then adds their underwear, and only at the very end adds their outer clothing. Lionel hires Royden to paint his girlfriend - and then removes the top layer of paint to reveal her in her underwear. When he debuts this painting, Janet is unenthusiastic, and expresses her dismay in a way that is impossible to ignore...
