Frazetta Auction

The time has arrived. I will be selling my collection in December through the PROFILES IN HISTORY auction house. There are many extraordinary examples that will be offered. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bid in a once-in-a-lifetime collection. I have passionately and lovingly assembled these originals over the past fifty years and have always collected with an eye to quality, not nostalgia, fad, or the moment's fashionable artist. Frazetta is and will always be a part of art history.

There will be a luxury oversized hardbound catalog for this auction. I will write the descriptions and provide background stories where appropriate. The catalog will be unique in the narrative context that is provided for the art. The collection will also include inscribed books, photographs, portfolios, paperbacks, books, and a near complete set of Frazetta fanzines from the past forty years. In short, it will be a treasure trove of Frazetta goodness.

The announcement is being made official today at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con. I will update this site with more information as I get it. This is just the start of the process. Do not ask about individual pieces just yet. Much that is in these blog pages will be for auction.

Start saving your pennies! Once these originals are sold I doubt if you will see them again for a long time. Fair warning has been given!
