Title STEPHEN FABIAN/J.R.R. TOLKIEN: THE HOBBIT. Original art, signed!
Seller ID 911
Drawing measures 14 x 11, framed out to 24 x 18. A large piece with a very desireable subject, from - the Golden Age of Fabian! The ONLY illustration Stephen Fabian ever did for J.R.R. Tolkien's work. Houghton Mifflin was issuing a new edition and sought examples from a number of artists - including Frank Frazetta! This is the scene - Bilbo in Smaug's lair - that Fabian illustrated. Tolkien himself objected and wanted to do the illustration himself. The Fabian was later published in ROCKET'S BLAST COMICOLLECTOR #130, 1976. DOMESTIC SHIPPING INCLUDED!
