    Description

    Chelsea Girls (Motif Editions, 1970). British Double Crown (20" X 30").
    "The key to understanding Chelsea Girls, and so many other products of the New York Underground, is to realize that it depends upon a cult for its initial acceptance, and upon a great many provincial cult-aspirers for its commercial appeal." Roger Ebert is quoted here writing about Andy Warhol's 3 1/2 hour, split-screen improvisational film dealing with the inhabitants of the Hotel Chelsea. Perhaps the best thing about the film's British release is the striking British poster, with artwork by famous illustrator Alan Aldridge. The poster offered is not the original theatrical release poster but a commercial art printing done several years after the original printing and approved by the artist from his original artwork. This is not a reproduction in our opinion, but a second printing. The original poster, reportedly printed in very small quantity, is almost impossible to find, making this lot an extraordinary opportunity for collectors! Rolled, Near Mint.
