R. I. P., Frank Frazetta
As fantasy's great patron saint
he lusted and muscled in paint
His figures were grounded
with pulses that pounded
Like Rubens without the restraint
Frank Frazetta, 1928-2010. Frazetta is arguably the most influential fantasy artist in history. The line about Rubens is from an article in Newsweek of many years ago. Below: A self-portrait.
