    Description

    Tim Kirk - "Return of the King" Poster Illustration Original Art (circa 1975). In 1975, Tim Kirk made a celebrated splash into the general public's consciousness with a calendar based on the characters and scenes from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Kirk's calendar originals were bought by Ian and Betty Ballantine, and few other Kirk/Tolkien paintings have since entered the marketplace. This spectacular scene features Frodo and Sam as they travel in disguise with a troop of Orcs who carry the Ring ever closer to Mount Doom. This moody masterwork was painted for a proposed Return of the King poster that was never published. Its overall size measures 27" x 21", and the art is in Excellent condition.
