    Description

    La Grande Illusion (R.A.C., R-1944). Very Fine+ on Linen. Horizontal French Double Grande (91.25" X 63") Hervé Morvan Artwork.
    Eighty-three years after it was made, La Grande Illusion remains one of cinema's great achievements. Starring Erich von Stroheim and Jean Gabin, director Jean Renoir focuses on the human relationships that evolved during World War I and shows the universality of humankind, regardless of nationality, religion, or social class. This haunting, post-WWII French poster has artwork by the talented Hervé Morvan, beautiful in both its skilled rendering and its symbolism. A great stone litho poster that has been backed on linen with no touchup applied, this double grande has only light fold wear, pinholes, a few creases, and a couple of small tears in the background.


    Estimate: $9,000 - $18,000.
