R.I.P. Frank Frazetta 1928-2010
Legendary artist and living legend Frank Frazetta passed away today. He was 82.
Frank Frazetta, the great painter of fantasy book covers, has died. The artist, most closely associated with Robert E. Howard’s “Conan the Barbarian” character, was the subject of the 2003 documentary “Frazetta: Painting With Fire.” After a series of strokes, Frazetta trained himself to paint using his left hand. His signature work often featured bare-chested “sword and sorcery” heroes, helpless women and fantasy creatures. His paintings often sell in the million-dollar range. Frazetta was 82.
