    Description

    The 400 Blows (Cocinor, 1959). French Grande (47" X 63").
    Francois Truffaut's first feature film was this 1959 portrait of Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud), a boy who turns to petty crime in the face of neglect at home and hard times at reform school. A semi-autobiography of its director, the film helped usher in the heady spirit of the French New Wave, and introduced the Doinel character, who became a fixture in Truffaut's movies over the years. The artwork on this classic poster is by the great French poster artist Boris Grinsson. This wonderful, original country-of-origin French grande has only minor fold and crossfold wear which has been restored by professional restoration. Very Fine+ on Linen.
