This September Heritage Auctions will put up for sale Jerry Weist’s trove of sf and fantasy art, rare first editions, movie posters, fanzines, and comics collected over the course of a lifetime. The auction will be held at Heritage’s Beverly Hills offices on September 12, in conjunction with the company’s Rare Books auction.
Works by some of the greatest artists in the field will be available — Frank Frazetta, J. Allen St. John, Frank R. Paul, Wally Wood, Virgil Finlay, Alex Schomburg, Chesley Bonestell, Richard Powers, and Frank Kelly Freas.
Weist passed away in January with several projects still in the publishing pipeline. Heritage will publish the new edition of Weist’s Comic Art Price Guide this summer.
HA’s full press release is online at Art Daily.
