FRANK FRAZETTA PELLUCIDAR PORTFOLIO PLATE, HAND-WATERCOLORED BY KENNETH SMITH IN 1975. THE FRAZETTA 10x15 PLATE IS FROM THE 1973 CAMILLE CAZEDESSUS, JR. "BURROUGHS ARTIST FRANK FRAZETTA" OPAR PRESS PORTFOLIO, FEATURING WORKS FROM A PROPOSED CANAVERAL PRESS BOOK EDITION OF "AT THE EARTH'S CORE/PELLUCIDAR".THIS IS PLATE #8 FROM THE 22-PLATE PORTFOLIO, AND FEATURES DAVID INNES BEING PULLED OUT OF HARM'S REACH BY TWO MONKEY-MEN, AWAY FROM THE ATTACKING WOLVES. I used to own this original drawing, which was about the same size, but considerably dirtier than this reproduction. This plate is in remarkable condition, considering its age-- with just a few defects, mostly in the top border, which could easily be trimmed off (SEE PHOTOS TO DETERMINE THE CONDITION FOR YOURSELF).
There are also tiny pin holes in all the corners and a bit of light yellowing, mostly in the borders. Kenneth Smith, the noted fantasy artist, hand-watercolored the print, and signed and dated it at the bottom left. He intended to watercolor all 21 of the portfolio plates but only completed two, which I'm offering separately in two separate listings.NOTE: Most importantly, this watercolored print has been stored in our darkened warehouse for nearly fifty years, so the colors are still Sharp and Bright and totally UNfaded. I also have Frazetta's posters of his rock album covers for all three of Molly Hatchet's first album covers, as well as their standees, (and for Nazareth's EXPECT NO MERCY, too) as well as over 100 different smaller Frazetta canvas-textured prints, ranging in size from 11x14" to 18x24". Let us know of any "wants" you may have, since many are not available elsewhere. In addition, I have most of his Limited Editions, Movie Posters, Soundtrack Albums, Picture Discs, Rock Albums, Paperback Books, Magazines, Newspaper Strips, Calendars, Puzzles, and HUNDREDS of other Memorabilia.
