Fan-favorite fantasy artist, Esteban Maroto, presents a stunning vision of Conan versus some predatory vampire demons, with the life of a lovely lady at stake. This scene was painted on canvas by Maroto in the midst of the artist's "peak period," during which he created a number of wonderful masterpieces for Warren Publications, and became highly esteemed for the uniqueness he brought to the genre. Originally published in 1977 as a poster, it later became the inside-front cover for Xotica, The Art of Esteban Maroto (SQP,1995). Painted in rich hues of blue and green, in ravishing oil color, Maroto brings his unique sense of style to this 17.5" x 22.5" painting, which has been framed to an overall size of 26" x 31". Signed by Esteban Maroto at the lower right. Personal collection of CollectorsShangri-La.com. Not for sale.
