Description:
Frank Frazetta - "In Pharaoh's Tomb" (Battlestar Galactica) Painting Original Art (1978). Double your fear, with two, count 'em, two, Death Dealer-like figures by Frank Frazetta! This fantastic oil painting was published in a 1978 TV Guide and appeared as an advertisement for the TV show "Battlestar Galactica." When Frazetta fans were mystified as to why Frazetta would turn down a rumored assignment of a cover for a "Star Wars" novelization, only to paint a similarly-themed scene for a TV show, Frazetta set the record straight for them in Testament: The Life and Art of Frank Frazetta: "The simple answer is that I got to paint what I wanted and I retained my originals and my copyrights. I wouldn't have been able to keep either if I had taken the 'Star Wars' job and I would not have had much creative freedom. That would have been a step backward for me." Painted in oils, this moody piece measures approximately 16" x 20", and is framed and in Excellent condition. Signed and dated 1978 at lower left.
