    Constantin Belinsky for The Lady from Shanghai (Columbia, 1947). Original French Preliminary Concept Artwork by Constantin Belinsky (2) (Approx. 5" X 7").
    An enigmatic, complex film noir, The Lady from Shanghai showcases the extensive talents of writer, producer, director, and star Orson Welles. The talented Constantin Belinsky provided these pieces of concept artwork featuring Welles and leading lady/real life wife Rita Hayworth. What's more, the design with Chinese characters down the left side was used in one of the original French release posters. Concept art is always difficult to find for any film, especially from so early in the production phase and from an overseas release. Both of these one of a kind pieces have pinholes in the corners, some smudges, and pencil marks due to the artistic process. Very Fine+.

    Estimate: $300 - $600.
