    Description

    SanJulian - Original Fantasy Illustration (undated). One of Europe's top artists, SanJulian began his career in a Spanish advertising agency, doing movie poster work for Twentieth-Century Fox. He eventually met Jim Warren, and rose to prominence among American artists for his breathtaking covers to Creepy, Eerie, and especially Vampirella, the character with whom he is most associated (his "Queen of Hearts" cover to Vampi #36 is still considered a classic). The piece offered here, with an image area of approximately 18.5" x 12.5", is fully rendered in grey tones that must be seen to be believed. There seems to be a small amount of paint loss, as though a more modest bikini top may once have covered this lovely lass, but this is barely noticeable upon casual inspection and does nothing to diminish the beauty of this stunning piece. Forcefully erotic, yet at the same time subtle and delicate, Sanjulian is truly an "artist's artist," whose work can, and should, be appreciated on a variety of levels.
