Frazetta: Painting with Fire

For the last half century, Frank Frazetta has dominated the world of Fantasy Art with his images of fierce warriors, helpless princesses and fantastical creatures set in the most lavish landscapes. Best known for his paintings of Robert E. Howard's quintessential sword and sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian, today a Frazetta painting can fetch up to $250,000 on the open market. "Painting With Fire" is not only a love letter to the art, but to the artist as well, tracing his life from his Brooklyn childhood to the present, lingering on his unique combination of intuition and skill.
