    Description

    Ravished Armenia (First National, 1919). Very Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41") AKA: Auction of Souls.
    An exceptionally rare piece, this one sheet comes from a partially-lost biographical film about Arshaluys "Aurora" Mardiganian, a survivor of the Armenian genocide. With help of a young screen writer in New York, Mardiganian had written a book detailing the destruction of her family and community, her survival of a forced death march, enslavement, and her eventual escape. Soon, her heartwrenching story found its way to the silver screen, with Mardiganian starring as herself and thousands of Armenians living in Southern California appearing as extras. Printed in stone lithography, this one sheet has had professional restoration to small tears, a couple of very minor chips, and a thin dust shadow at the top. The upper border has been airbrushed.
