Lot 26: (Frazetta) Lord of The Rings: “The Black Nazgul”. (969 views)

(Frazetta) Lord of The Rings: “The Black Nazgul”.
Estimate: $40,000 - $60,000

26. (Frazetta) Lord of The Rings: “The Black Nazgul”. (1975) Accomplished in pencil, pen and ink on 14 x 18 in. artists’ leaf. One of Frank’s most recognized compositions. Drawn before the amazing Lord of the Rings cinema projects would be envisioned and become worldwide phenomenon. Powerful in execution and perfect in composition. Again, an unqualified masterpiece. Majestic and beautiful in its execution. Countless artists have “borrowed” elements from this composition to add to their own work. I dare say that Frazetta is the most extensively swiped artist in history. A little aside, for most of his life Frank claimed that the original King Kong was his favorite movie. Later he would sometimes award that place to the first two Godfather movies. Finally, after seeing the Lord of the Rings movies he proclaimed that these were his final favorites of all time. He told me, “How can any movie be better than this? Nothing can match it.” High praise indeed!
$40,000 - $60,000
