Frank Frazetta’s “Conan the Conquerer” sells for $1 million

According to Spectrum Fantastic Art, Frank Frazetta’s “Conan the Conquerer” painting that was used for the cover of Robert E. Howard book by the same name, has been sold to an undisclosed collector for $1 million. A previous painting by Frazetta had sold for around $250,000, so this is quite a jump. All of the Conan cover paintings are on display in the Frazetta Museum and it’s not sure whether or not they will go on sale, but I doubt they will fetch as large a price as “Conan the Conquerer” is considered the “penultimate painting in the canon.”
