    Description

    Frank Frazetta - Original Preliminary Art for Paradox (undated). Frank Frazetta is the king of fantasy art. In his pictures, death and mutilation often reign when muscular warriors hack each other to smithereens with swords, battleaxes and maces. This tiny pencil and watercolor sketch measures 2.5" x 3". Not much larger than a business card, it's packed with all the essential design and color indications which were later realized as his famous painting, "Paradox", published in 1975, as the cover to "The Book of Paradox", written by Louise Cooper. The overall art size is 3" x 4" and the paper is in excellent shape. Signed by Frank Frazetta. A great example of big things coming in small packages! Provenance: The Alexander Gallery.
