Two Versions and a Sketch

This is a pretty powerful composition that seems almost Frazetta-like in its sweep and execution, even though it was painted nearly a hundred years before the fantasy master. It was interesting to find two versions and a sketch and assemble them together here.

Wow amazing that this is 19th century. It reconfirms that the second half of pop culture 20th century owes a lot to the late 19th century.
