Lovers #73 - non-attributed Matt Baker art

Lovers v1 #73, 1955 - After their parents pass away, an unmarried woman looks after her younger, less responsible sister. Both are attractive and youthful, drawn impeccably by Matt Baker. A couple's tender kiss opens the story, with minimal competing details in the background. Subsequent pages are sensitively drawn, emphasizing characters' faces and expressions. Curiously, some comic book guides fail to attribute the tale to Baker. Other artists in this issue include Al Hartley, Jay Scott Pike and Vince Colletta (art & cover). See today's posts, more Baker or Lovers issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
