    Description

    Chelsea Girls (Motif Editions, 1970). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. British Double Crown (20" X 30"). Alan Aldridge Artwork.
    "The key to understanding Chelsea Girls, and so many other products of the New York Underground, is to realize that it depends upon a cult for its initial acceptance, and upon a great many provincial cult-aspirers for its commercial appeal." Roger Ebert is quoted here writing about Andy Warhol's 3 1/2 hour, split-screen improvisational film dealing with the inhabitants of the Hotel Chelsea. Perhaps the best thing about the film's British release is its striking poster, with artwork by famous illustrator Alan Aldridge. The poster offered in this lot is not the original theatrical release poster but a commercial art printing done several years after the original printing and approved by the artist from his original artwork. This is not a reproduction in our opinion, but a second printing. The original poster, reportedly printed in very small quantity, is almost impossible to find, making this lot an extraordinary opportunity for collectors. It displays such signs of usage as mild edge wear, some creasing, and some surface scuffs. Also visible are small tears at the edges and foxing into the interior. Regardless, this rare poster still has a stunning amount of impact and would be a fantastic addition to any collection.
