Description

    Avventura a Capri (Universal International, 1959). Italian 4 - Foglio (55.5" X 77.5").
    The idyllic, sun-soaked island of Capri, surrounded by the sparkling cerulean waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, has long been a favorite backdrop for filmmakers. The simple premise of fun and romance in such an enchanting locale is enough incentive to watch this light and breezy picture starring Maurizio Arena, Yvonne Monlaur, Alessandra Panaro, Gianni Rizzo, and Xenia Valderi. Perhaps even more attractive than the ensemble cast is the delightful 4-foglio poster for the film, created by the deft hands of artist Anselmo Ballester. Ballester's first attempt at poster design was at the age of 14, spawning a career that lasted more than four decades and produced some of the finest pieces of movie poster art in the world. Here, Ballester captures the spark of youth and beauty, enjoying "dolce far niente," or "sweet idleness." A wonderful display piece full of vivid color, the poster has had professional restoration to touchup borders and folds that showed tears, small chips and light wear. Very Fine on Linen.
