I'm a Frazetta fan, and knew before hand that I would love this book. However, I was surprised and amused to discover so much about the artist's personality, how he describes his love & respect for women, etc...
There's also a great painting of his wife, without (obviously) any of the violence & eroticism that Frazetta is mostly known for. It's just a sweet, beautiful painting of a nice looking, every day person... Very interesting...

Format: Broché
Perso je suis fan inconditionnel, donc je ne sais pas si mon commentaire sera vraiment objectif. Chaque peinture de frazetta est pour moi une oeuvre d'art qui pourrait rivaliser dans les musées avec les grands maitres classiques...je sais j'en ferai hurler beaucoup...mais bon, la maîtrise technique est indéniable et incontestable, frazetta a montré ses progrès au fil des années dans bon nombre de ses oeuvres jusqu'à un aboutissement saisissant dans ses scènes d'héroic fantasy...l'action est là, figée, mais lourde de sens, on imagine instantanément tout ce qui a pu se passer avant, et ce qui va arriver ensuite...chaque scène est emprunte d'une cohérence et d'une beauté folle, inégalé à mon sens encore aujourd'hui, et pourtant combien de fois imité par tous les autres artistes d'aujourd'hui qui essaient de lui "voler" sa patte si particulière, issue des écoles espagnoles mais dont frazetta a fait LE style Frazetta qui sert de référence à tous les fans de Fantasy aujourd'hui encore.
Frazetta et Vallejo...à posséder....car ce sont les premiers et les plus grands....

Comics emphasis, plus more famous paintings. Whoa! 14 janvier 2002
Par Bryan E. Leed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is book 2 of a trilogy. This one seems to have more emphasis on his comic book and comic strip work, than what appears in the other two books of the trilogy, "Icon" and "Testament." This one includes an 8-page romance comic book story by Frank, from 1952.
There are also plenty more Tarzan/Burroughs/John Carter of Mars works, and terrific paintings of Savage Pellucidar.
Frank's work for Warren magazines, like Eerie, Creepy, and Vampirella get shown and discussed in this book (and also in the other two books of this series).
All of the different eras and decades of Frank's life and career are discussed and shown, in all three books, but always with different paintings, drawings, personal photos, and different commentary by different friends and business associates.
I would recommend starting with "Icon" if you're new to Frazetta's work, but "Legacy" is a close second, containing the works that he is best known for. "Testament" has a focus on unpublished, never before seen work.
One thing that is surprising in all three of these books is seeing how Frazetta would often paint over his paintings, to improve them and change major elements, after they were originally published. So, many of his paintings look different than the way they were printed on paperback covers in the 1960's and '70's.
I am very pleased with all three of these books, but "Legacy" is my favorite of the three, if I really had to choose.

Better & Better 23 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After "Icon" I didn't think there was anything left to be said about arguably this century's greatest fantasy artist. Boy, was I wrong! "Legacy" is a stunning collection of paintings and drawings, many that have either never been included in Frazetta's previous books or are published here for the first time. Check out "Predators"--wow! There's even an entire romance comic story from the '50s that showcases some of the best brush work you're likely to see. As the editors say, there's only one Frazetta. Thank goodness there are TWO great books: "Icon" and "Legacy"!

A fine collection of fantastic images 23 juillet 2001
Par Michael J. Mazza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Legacy: Selected Drawings & Paintings by Frank Frazetta" brings together many examples from the career of this distinctive artist. The book has been edited by Arnie Fenner and Cathy Fenner, and includes a foreword by Danton Burroughs.
"Legacy" gives examples of Frazetta's covers for books, magazines, and comic books, as well as movie posters and even comedy album covers. Many memorable characters from pop culture are depicted: King Kong, Dracula, Tarzan, etc. I especially liked the illustrations from Edgar Rice Burroughs' Mars books, with their six-limbed Martian apes and tusked, green-skinned warriors.
Some of Frazetta's illustrations are haunting, even melancholy, and others are exciting and action-packed. A sorcerer summoning a demon, a scuba diver facing a sea monster, and of course, voluptuous maidens will be found in this book. In some cases, alternate versions of the same commission are given (making this book especially useful for art students and cultural historians). I recommend this book to those interested in the visual art of the sci-fi, fantasy, and adventure genres.

Sinewy bloodsoaked barbarians and voluptuous goddesses.... 8 mars 2000
Par yygsgsdrassil - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Sci-fi and fantasy fans know of Frank Frazetta from his great covers of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan and Pellucidar paperbacks--and of covers of the 60's-70's popart horror slick magazines Eerie, Creepy, and Vampirella...indeed, these same fans became somewhat like latter day speculators by causing prices of some of these books to increase in some instances more than one hundred fold simply because Frazetta did the cover art. Well, now because of "Legacy", all Frazetta fans can enjoy his sword and sorcery work, his post-Lil'Abner penwork and humor, his inventions of neo-Gothic phantasmogoria, elves, princess goddesses and swampy-moss covered jungle dramas without someone price gorging--indeed, original prints of these great works may by now be on par with, say, a Warhol lithograph, but that in my opinion shouldn't be the reason one enjoys Frazetta...Frazetta's work is and always have been great to look at, to get lost in, to live in those dark fantasies he conjures up. Trust me. Are you gonna love this!

Another Excellent Gallery of Frazetta's Works 3 mars 2000
Par Hank Robbins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After having immensely enjoyed ICON, I waited with baited breath for another volume to help my Frazetta collection towards completion. I did not have to wait long. LEGEND is leaps and bounds ahead of ICON (although both books are essential for any collection of Frazetta's works), both in biographical works and selection of paintings. While ICON concentrated mostly on his "fantasy-based" paintings (largely the magnificient pieces that Frazetta created for the Robert E. Howard series), LEGEND concentrates on the "fantasy-based" paintings Frazetta painted both for Howard and Burroughs, as well as much-appreciated comic work and book covers from other genres of literature. A perfect companion piece to ICON or any other fantasy or Frazetta collection.
