    Description

    Ken Kelly - Black Canaan Cover Original Art (Berkley, 1978). The Berkley-Medallion Conan book series featured only Robert E. Howard stories, as published in Weird Tales and other magazines. One of the modern masters of the fantasy genre, Ken Kelly, painted the cover art for all the books in the series, and some contain a fold-out poster of the cover art. This striking cover painting, titled "Death at Sea's Edge," depicts Conan pitting his fighting skills against a horrifying crab-like creature. Painted in the rich deep color and gorgeous detail that Kelly is famous for, this oil on board painting has an image area of approximately 40" x 29". The painting’s varnish has small spots of mold; the condition is Good. Ken Kelly has signed and dated the painting at the lower right.
