Ray Bradbury personally owned art by early sci-fi fanzine artist Hannes Bok, whose career he launched. An outspoken admirer of Bok's art, Bradbury actively promoted Bok at the first WorldCon (World Science Fiction Convention) in 1939, and ''Weird Tales'' magazine picked up the unknown artist. Painting depicts a transparent queen chess piece being moved by a human hand, contrasting sharply with the dark background, in which a desert scape is visible with mountains on the horizon and nude men running through the scene. Acrylic on illustration board painting is unsigned. Matted and framed to an overall size of 15'' x 21.5''. Near fine. With a COA from the Ray Bradbury estate.
