    Frank Frazetta - Original Sketch Art (undated). Frank Frazetta is best known for his paintings of Robert E. Howard's quintessential sword-and-sorcery hero, Conan the Barbarian, which graced the covers of Conan's paperback adventures in the '60s and '70s. It was Frazetta who single-handedly turned Howard's creation from a lurid curiosity to a cottage industry. In turn, Frazetta became the fantasy genre's premier artist, a prolific worker in a variety of media whose art began to appear on book and magazine covers and album jackets. He was also the father of four and patriarch to a large, loving bunch. This 5" x 7.25" sketch features figures of a rather extended family, which might or might not represent Papa Frazetta and his brood. The two main figures look striking like caricatures of Frank and his wife, Ellie. Signed by Frank Frazetta. Provenance: The Alexander Gallery.
