    1. I agree-- great catch. And yet, it can't be, because Frazetta himself explained that he never copied.

      This must be an optical illusion.

  2. Frank swipe??? No way!............just kidding

  3. I was just at the newly opened Frazetta museum in Stroudsburg over the weekend. And they have a little area that recreates his studio space with chair, palette, table and easel. And on the table, among other bric-a-brac, is Frazetta's copy of Bridgman's Constructive Anatomy.
