Description

    A Fistful of Dollars (Unidis, 1964). Signed Original Artwork in Tempera by Sandro Simeoni (20.5" X 29.5").
    Italian poster artist Sandro Simeoni produced artwork for hundreds of posters beginning in the 1950s, but his most memorable and dramatic pieces were for the Italian campaign for the original release of Sergio Leone's Western masterpiece. As the first film of the Spaghetti Western genre to be released in America and starring several American actors, the impact was immediate and monumental, especially for Clint Eastwood's career. Paper for this title is always highly sought for, but original Italian artwork is simply the rarest of the rare -- and here it is! A spectacular image in tempera paint, and signed by the artist, who signed his name as Symeoni, in the lower right, this was used for the Italian 2-foglio poster for the original release in 1964. The image area is 17.5" X 18" on board that measures 20" X 30". The borders show foxing and a few edge tears. The image area shows a few smudges, but the colors are rich and vibrant and breathtaking! This is from the collection of Edoardo Ezio Pizzi, the man who handled all publicity and press relations for Unidis and Jolly Films and handled this film from pre-production through release.. For true fans of this seminal film, and fans of the incredible artist Simeoni, this is the ultimate piece to own. Fine+.
