DescriptionGilberton Artist - Classics Illustrated #142 "Abraham Lincoln" Painted Cover Original Art (Gilberton, 1958). The feature for issue #142 was Abraham Lincoln, and this wonderful piece of painted cover art depicts the future president as a strapping young man preparing to wrestle with a rival. The artwork was extended an additional 2.5" at the bottom, with a painted paper overlay (cut into the shape of grass), covering the joined extension. The overall effect of this addition is rather unique, giving a three-dimensional quality to the foreground foliage. The artwork is on heavy illustration board and has an image area of 14.25" x 20.75". There is masking tape indicating the border of the image area, and extended at the bottom as noted, the piece is otherwise in Very Good condition.
