    Description

    La Grande Illusion (R.A.C., R-1944). Very Fine+ on Linen. Horizontal French Double Grande (91.25" X 63") Hervé Morvan Artwork.
    A film of far-reaching influence that has touched minds and hearts decades after its release, Jean Renoir's incredible anti-war picture deserves its status as one of the best films ever made. Starring Jean Gabin, Marcel Dalio, Erich von Stroheim, and Pierre Fresnay, the film focuses on the bonds humans forge with one another despite differences in class, nationality, and religion. Known for his bold and colorful commercial illustrations, artist Hervé Morvan provides the stylized graphics for this poster, beautiful in both its skilled rendering and its symbolism. Backed on linen with no touchup applied, this beautiful stone litho poster has only pinholes, slight wear at the folds, some creases, and a few small tears.
