    1900 by Michelangelo Papuzza (Paramount, 1977). Signed Original Ink and Watercolor Concept Artwork on Art Board (13" X 18").
    Clocking in at a total of a whopping five hours and seventeen minutes, Bernardo Bertolucci's epic story of friendship and revolt is among one of the longest movies ever made. It stars an international cast with the undisputed talents of Robert De Niro, GĂ©rard Depardieu, and Dominique Sanda, set in the tumultuous times of early 1900s Italy, with fascists and socialists clashing at every turn. Although never used in the film's advertising campaign, artist Michelangelo Papuzza gives us a striking interpretation of the film with this symbolic illustration, resembling a traditional playing card. Painted on art board, this beautiful piece bears the artist's signature and has been backed on cardstock. Signs of handling include slight edge wear and bits of surface paper loss in the borders and outer background, some of which venture into the image. Fine/Very Fine on Cardstock.

    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
