Description

    Boris Vallejo - "The Lavalite World" Paperback Book Cover Painting Original Art (Ace Books, 1977). An Ace Books edition of Philip Jose Farmer's novel sported this action-packed Boris Vallejo scene. In his book, Fantasy Art Techniques, Vallejo expounded on his approach for this painting, "Some authors are very descriptive and make the task of selecting a visually effective scene relatively easy. The Lavalite World is a good example. It is a book of adventures and consequently presents any number of action scenes involving the hero, the heroine, and the monster or villain. To show the hero and heroine riding a tree trunk into battle was, to my mind, colorful and unusual enough to evoke any browser's interest in the book." This dynamic painting has an image area of 16" x 26". The art has been professionally framed, and is in Excellent condition.
