"The purple piper plays his tune,
The choir softly sing;
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue,
For the Court of the Crimson King"

was painted by Barry Godber who died  shortly after the albums release. 
The front depicts the 21st Century Schizoid Man 
while the inner-sleeve featured the Crimson King
The original painting is now owned by Robert Fripp.
