    Description

    A Night at the Opera (MGM, R-1948). One Sheet (27" X 41") Al Hirschfeld Artwork.
    After signing on with MGM after running amuck at Paramount, the boy's first project at the new studio was a stab at society (as usual) and their high-brow attitudes and appreciation for all things classical-- including Opera. To this day, A Night at the Opera is considered the Marx Brothers masterpiece of irreverent humor. A classic Al Hirschfeld image, this one sheet borrows the instantly recognizable artwork from the original release window card. Touchup has been applied to the a pinholes in the corners and the folds to address some chips and tears at the top horizontal and bottom vertical folds. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
