Ten iconic original pieces by legendary illustrator Mort Künstler are to be auctioned off on May 31 as part of the Heritage Auctions Modern & Contemporary Art Auction. These dramatic and inventive pieces were featured on the covers and in story illustrations for popular magazines such as Stag and Male in the 1960's and 70's, when Mr. Künstler earned the title "King of Men's Adventure".
