    Description

    The Bicycle Thieves (ENIC, 1948). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (55" X 78") Ercole Brini Artwork.
    Novelist Luigi Bartolini penned this touching and heartbreaking tale, brought deftly to the screen by acclaimed director Vittorio DeSica. The film is a poignant look at the hardships endured by Italians during the post-war years. DeSica created several neo-realist films (Shoeshine, Two Women, Miracle in Milan) that attempted to show ordinary people dealing with suffering in a manner that was true to life. Considered his masterpiece, this endearing picture deserves an equally brilliant poster, and this country-of-origin poster hits the mark, with artwork by Ercole Brini. Professionally restored, this country of origin poster has had corrections to fold wear and separations, creases, and small tears and chips. There was also some paper loss in the lower right corner that did not affect the printing.
