DescriptionMiracle in Milan (RKO, 1951). French Grande (45.5" X 60.5") Boris Grinsson Artwork.
Vittorio DeSica's follow up to The Bicycle Thieves features Francesco Golisano as young Toto, an orphaned boy who falls in with a community of beggars. The boy is given a wish-granting dove, but the bird is stolen, and the beggars are rousted by the police and jailed. A wistful and gentle fairy tale film, beautifully directed by DeSica and skillfully rendered in this lovely image by Boris Grinsson. This fine French grande is in great shape, with touchup only applied to the folds. Very Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
