    Description

    Kronos by Unknown Artist (20th Century Fox, 1957). Very Fine. Original Belgian Mixed Media Poster Artwork (16.5" X 10").
    This exciting illustration, painted with bright color and showcasing attention-grabbing composition, comes from the original Belgian release of an independently made, sci-fi cult classic. Since its first showing, Kronos has had a dedicated coterie of eco-conscious fans for its not-so-veiled message of resource responsibility, as well as the disastrous fate that could await civilization should preventative measures be cast to the wayside. By far the best image created for the film, Belgian's poster artwork takes advantage of all of the drama a story about energy-draining aliens and giant robots could possibly bring, outstripping domestic U.S. posters by a wide margin. Such indications of handling present in the piece are a few small stains and a thin scratch within the title and text. Other wear is found in the borders, including a couple of dust shadows, as well as adhesive remnants, however this is due to the production process. There are two very minor pieces of cellophane tape in the lower border bracing a registration mark, which are part of the printing process and do not affect the grade.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
