Luis Royo is perhaps the most highly regarded pinup/fantasy artist of the past twenty years. He is world renowned as the master of this genre, and he is the single most published cover artist in the history of Heavy Metal magazine. Royo, more than any other artist, is credited with defining the look of Heavy Metal magazine, and influencing the world of modern fantasy and pinup art. Royo's artwork has graced the covers of hundreds of magazines and books, and his work has been collected in a best-selling series of books devoted to his work. He is a rarity in the world of illustration art in that his popularity is literally worldwide. It is especially noteworthy that his original paintings are virtually nonexistent in the marketplace. Royo's most desirable work, his famous signature pieces, are those of strong women, presented in this unique style, where the worlds of science fiction, fantasy and pinup collide. The fact that the emphasis of Royo's marketing lies in the publishing (calendars, books, prints, etc.) and licensing of his work, rather than the selling of his originals (and the fact that he does not accept commissions from collectors), plays a great role in the virtual absence of his material in the marketplace. This is a major museum-quality work by Luis Royo, the legendary master of fantasy art.

- Robert Edward Auctions
 

"At last, with a great deal of shadows that had settled inside, he said goodbye to the master. He set up his own studio and began painting fantastic and bright scenes. But gradually he came into its own labyrinth and subject deepened, the darkness appeared in his paintings".
