More than 80 pieces drawn by Frazetta will up for bid, according to the auction house.
The lot includes an assortment of work, reference materials, signed books and other items used by Frazetta.
Amassed for more than 40 years, the Winiewicz’s collection includes two Tarzan paintings and a Lord of the Rings Illustration, “The Witch-king of Egmar,” according to the auction house.
