    Shoe Shine (CID, 1947). French Grande (47" X 63").
    One of the classics of Italian neo-realist cinema, this touching film by Vittorio DeSica - who also helmed Bicycle Thieves (1948) and Umberto D. (1952) - tells the story of two Italian street children, abandoned by their parents in the wake of World War II, who make a living shining the shoes of American GIs. Their dream of someday owning a white horse is dashed when they are shipped off to a reformatory. This French stone litho's heartrending images of the orphaned boys captures the essence of DeSica's film. Touchup has been applied to a small amount of paper loss along the bottom horizontal fold, at the left of the center horizontal fold, a tear in the top left corner, and toning along the folds. There are two Academy Award snipes at the bottom. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.

    Estimate: $400 - $800.
