    Description

    The Sting by Charles Moll (Universal, 1973). Near Mint. Original Mixed Media Poster Artwork on Illustration Board (24" X 30").
    Known among movie fans for his iconic movie posters for films such as Logan's Run and Bugsy Malone, artist Charles Moll provided artwork for many film poster and book covers throughout the 1970s and into the 1980s. Featured here for the first time at Heritage is Moll's original artwork for the 1973 film The Sting. This art was used in the United States for the 40" X 60" poster, and it was used on various foreign posters printed in Italy and Denmark. Emphasizing the profit being chased by Paul Newman and Robert Redford's characters in the film (as well as the danger chasing the both of them), this beautiful piece was created using colored pencils and paint with a painted overlay of Robert Shaw adhered to the surface. The two white gambling chips next to Shaw's image are also overlays adhered to the board. The illustration board has a few pinholes near its top and bottom edges, but it shows no other wear beyond the normal smudges associated with the creation of the piece.
