Conan painting sold for $1.5 million
If you had $1.5 million spare, what would you buy? Someone has just bought an original Frank Frazetta painting "Conan the Destoyer" for that sum. Phew! This and other Frazetta paintings helped to create the image of sword & sorcery/heroic fantasy in the 1970s. The painting was sold at a comics convention in San Diego.
Frazetta's paitings of Conan graced the Lancer editions of the Robert E Howard's books, published in the 70s (and on the UK reprints, if memory serves correctly).
