    Description

    Frank Frazetta "Tree of Death" Painting Original Art (1970). As amazing in its layout as it is for the subject matter, this incredible painting by legendary master painter Frank Frazetta features a sinewy barbarian rescuing a wizard from a horrific tree hell-bent on having a magical lunch! Three years after it was painted, it was used as the cover for the paperback Flashing Swords #2 published by Nelson Doubleday. It was also used for a poster print in 1980 and later appeared in a Frazetta art book; yet, many hard-core Frazetta fans have never even seen this one before. The oil on board painting has an image area of 15.75" x 19.5" in the ornate 22.5" x 26.5" open-front wooden frame. It is signed and dated in the lower right of the image area. In Excellent condition.
