    Alex Blum - Classics Illustrated #86 "Under Two Flags" Painted Cover Original Art (Gilberton, 1951). This brilliantly colorful painting by Alex Blum illustrated the cover for the adaptation of Ouida's Under Two Flags. The classic Foreign Legion romance tells the tale of the honorable Bertie Cecil, who enlists for a military life of danger and hardship (as well as romance) under the blazing Algerian sun, in order to protect his younger brother and a noble lady. Painted on masonite board, this piece has an image area of 11.5" x 17.25". There is tape on the border outside the image area, and some masonite chipping at the edges, otherwise the piece is in Very Good condition.
