    Cat Girl

    Frank Frazetta - Cat Girl rough (undated). If you ask Frazetta which of his oil paintings he considers to be his all-time masterpiece, above all the others, he usually mentions a few candidates (including some of the Conan paintings), but always ends up citing "Cat Girl" as his all-time favorite. It shows a lone and beautiful wild girl, standing by a massive gnarled, mossy tree, surrounded by black and spotted leopards. First published as a cover for Warren's Eerie magazine, Frazetta reworked the painting several times to perfect the figure of the girl. Offered here is his first and only concept sketch of the Cat Girl, the actual moment of inspiration which led to the finished painting which hangs today in the Frazetta Museum. Frank would never sell this painting; it is his masterpiece. The concept sketch here, done in pencil, ink, and watercolor, captures the moment of genius, the point of creation of this painting. The art, which measures about 3.5" x 5", is mounted on a piece of 5.75" x 7.5" board. From the collection of Russ Cochran.
