    Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell by R. Cortella (Paramount, 1980s). Very Fine-. Signed Original Spanish Gouache Artwork on Paper (13.25 X 20.5").
    Signed by the artist, this illustration was created for the Spanish video box cover of the last of Hammer's long-running Frankenstein series films. The movie was also the last of Terence Fisher's projects before his retirement from the director's chair, from which he had made not only the original Curse of Frankenstein in 1957, but also Horror of Dracula, The Hound of the Baskervilles, the 1959 version of The Mummy, The Devil Rides Out, and numerous other Frankenstein and Dracula pictures in Hammer's catalogue. A debut piece at Heritage, the painting shows pinholes, unobtrusive stains and smudges, and slight surface rippling, all of these are most likely from the creative process. Also present are small surface lifts at the top and bottom of the image, and the artwork has a strip of paper tape on the verso.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
