A Flora (or a fake)

MDS00524

Peer Gynt by Edvard Grieg  Suite No. 1 performed by the Cromwell Symphony Orchestra and Suite No. 2 performed by the Sussex Symphony Orchestra Camden Records  A budget label with what looks like a Jim Flora illustration.  Jon Henry is credited on the bottom front cover, but perhaps he art directed?  Looking for a Flora expert (Irwin Chusid are you there?)
