    Frank Frazetta The People That Time Forgot "Captive Princess" Cover Painting Original Art (Ace, 1973). It seems like Frank Frazetta's artwork has always been popular in some circles or another, but in recent years it has been setting record prices on the open market. This is another stunning piece that allowed his skills to shine... a moody, foreboding setting, ape-like sub-humans, and of course the desperate damsel in distress! A simply wonderful composition as you would expect from a master painter such as Frazetta.
    This classic Frazetta fantasy painting comes from the absolute pinnacle of the master's career and featured the hallmarks for which he's most celebrated. And not only are the content and composition Frazetta perfection, but the book is A+ as well: it doesn't get any better for a Frazetta image than Edgar Rice Burroughs, as the artist always brought out the big guns for John Carter of Mars, Tarzan, and other content by the founder of fantasy adventure fiction. Such a peak period masterpiece, brilliantly composed and intricately painted, truly glows in person. And this beautiful painting is totally fresh to market, never before having been offered at auction and residing privately for decades.
    Crafted in oil on pressboard with an image area of 17.5" x 23.5". It is open front framed to 26" x 31.75". Signed in the lower right of the image area. The painting is in Excellent condition and shows brilliantly; the frame shows some scratches.
