I mean the picture on the wall. Do Led Zeppelin fans know who painted it? – Metal_Treasure

This is an original album cover but it was created by Salvador Dalí himself so I guess it counts. Salvador Dalí created it for the purposes of this album because Jackie Gleason was a friend of his. – Metal_Treasure

Moving Pictures – Rush

The pictures they are moving are pieces of art (but they aren’t moving famous paintings, such as Mona Lisa ? so I can’t put them higher) – Metal_Treasure
