Ray Bradbury personally owned painting by Louis Glanzman, commissioned as the cover art for the 1963 edition of Bradbury's book, ''The Illustrated Man'', first published in 1951. Art depicts the title character, whose unique, animated tattoos serve as the frame story that ties together Bradbury's compilation of 18 short stories. This character of the tattooed man reappears later in Bradbury's classic, ''Something Wicked This Way Comes''. Glanzman's painting is casein on board, with a transparent overlay containing drawings of several of the eerie tattoos as well as contrasting paint highlights. Measures 15.75'' x 27.25''. Overlay is taped to board around its edges. Verso bears ink notations, likely by the book's publisher from printing. Painting itself is near fine. With a COA from the Ray Bradbury estate.
