DescriptionClassics Illustrated #113 "The Forty-Five Guardsmen" Painted Cover Original Art (Gilberton, 1953). A dramatic, explosive, painting by an anonymous artist made a fitting cover for The Forty-Five Guardsmen, a tale by Alexander Dumas set in 16th Century France, full of the rich historical detail, rousing action, and gripping characters that mark the best of Dumas' work. Painted on illustration board, this piece has an image area of 13.5" x 16.25". There are tape stains and chipping on the border outside the image area, and the paint surface shows some soiling (probably paper residue, stuck to wet varnish), otherwise the piece is in Good condition.
