Description

    Alex Schomburg - Original Cover Art - "Mine Destroyer" (circa 1943). Whether they were life-saving devices or death machines, nobody could create fantastic machinery like Alex Schomburg. This original cover painting to an unidentified magazine depicts a creation called the Mine Destroyer. Measuring approximately 25.5" by 20", the image area on this painting is 17" by 23" There is some wear in the margins, but the art itself is unaffected, save for a tiny 1.5" by 1/8" strip at the lower left that appears to be some kind of adhesive. Fortunately, this area is barely noticeable, at the outermost edge of the art, and could easily be covered when framed and matted. Original art by Schomburg isn't offered for sale very often, so this may be your best opportunity to own a piece from the undisputed King of Golden Age covers.
