Cave Man Carrying a Woman
Ink on paper
10.25 x 7.5 in.
Signed lower center
Frazetta's magically assured line and sense of drama are never more evident than in this flawlessly composed drawing. The master's ever-present juxtaposition between humor and sexuality, bold design and subtle movement, loose spontaneity and astonishing precision is on sparkling display in this pen-and-ink jewel. On the back cover of Legacy: Selected Paintings and Drawings by Frank Frazetta, editor/publisher Betty Ballantine enthused, "If I were called upon to make one generalized statement about Frank Frazetta's work I would say that it fairly screams with life. Nothing that he does, in sketches or in final color is in the least static." Frazetta's peer Robert McGinnis summed it up for many fantasy fans when he wrote, "What do I think of Frank Frazetta's art? Simply put I think Frank is the best."
