    Frank Frazetta Outlaw World (White Apes) Paperback Cover Painting Original Art (Popular Library, 1969). A simply stunning example of why Frank Frazetta's work has been so valued by publishers and art collectors alike. This peak-period piece invokes a feeling of claustrophobia and danger, while still impressing the viewer with the vast landscape. This was created with exquisite detail and perspective on what is one of his larger works. The thick, textured layers of heavy paint on the rocky sides seem to be crushing in on the viewer. Don't overlook the caveman and curvy "Frazetta woman" clinging to the left side cliff. Both are hallmarks of Frazetta's past works, and highly-sought features of his pieces. Frazetta was also a King Kong fan, and this was an opportunity for him to pay homage to the classic film in a polished and dramatic work. Done for the paperback "Outlaw World" by well-known science fiction writer Edmond Hamilton. The piece was created in oil on canvas board. The 26" x 34" frame has a 21.25" x 29.5" image area. Signed in the lower left. In Excellent condition.
