    Description

    The Mate of the Sally Ann (Film Skadespel, 1917). Swedish Linocut One Sheet (23.5" X 35").
    This rare Swedish poster features an image of young Mary Miles Minter (Sally Ann of the title) taking the wheel of her grandfather's boat. Allan Forrest, George Periolat, and Adele Farrington co-star in this comedy drama that was later released as Peggy Rebels. A Heritage first. This art deco inspired poster was created for the Swedish release of the film, and was produced using the Linocut printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface and the sheet is inked with a roller called a brayer, and then impressed onto paper. Although linoleum as a floor covering dates to the 1860s, the linocut printing technique was used first by the artists of Die Brücke in Germany between 1905 and 1913 where it had been similarly used for wallpaper printing. They initially described these prints as woodcuts, which sounded more respectable. Heritage is pleased to present several Linocut Swedish posters in this auction, as they are exceedingly rare, with only a very few produced over a short period of time. There is right edge wear. Folded, Very Fine.
