Jeff Jones - Kothar Barbarian Swordsman Cover Original Art (Belmont Books, 1969). This atmospheric portrait of a caped warrior, armed with dagger and crossbow, captures all the romance, magic, and excitement of the sword and sorcery genre. Jeffrey Jones' art brought a striking visual elan to the fantasy field, and thus, a new generation of readers to the thrilling adventures of those pulp heroes of yore. From Kothar Barbarian Swordsman by Gardner Fox, "From out of the deepest, most violent recesses of mankind's collective memory emerges Kothar, the gigantic barbarian, and his enchanted sword, Frostfire. Kothar dominates the misty bloody world before recorded time." This oil on board painting measures an overall 22" x 36", and is in Excellent condition. In 1975 Jeffrey Jones founded "the Studio" with fellow artists Bernie Wrightson, Barry Windsor-Smith, and Michael Kaluta, where they pursued their individual careers, inspired by a shared atmosphere of intense creativity. There is little doubting, with such masterpieces as this painting, that Jeff Jones numbers among the most influential fantasy artists of our time!
