Frazetta Friday: 13 Frazetta Fantasy Women
From Queen Kong to Golden Girl and all points between, Frank Frazetta unabashedly painted sensuous, usually voluptuous, women.
As he described it,
“I sensed that she [Eleanor Frazetta, née Kelly] , would be forever loyal and I never ever had that feeling about any other girl. I’d been involved with. Sure, she had most of the physical attributes I looked for in a women, she was beautiful and athletic. But beyond that she was very sharp and alert and pert and she knew a lot of things I didn’t know.”
Here are just a few of his paintings.
