    Serpico by Piero Ermanno Iaia (Columbia, 1974). Very Fine. Original Mixed Media Poster Artwork (17" X 16.5") & Yugoslavian Poster (19.5" X 27").
    Italian artist Piero Ermanno Iaia makes good use of foreshortening and distinctive colors in this piece of original poster art, which is making its first appearance at Heritage Auctions. It's an excellent depiction of Al Pacino in this biographical crime film about the real-life undercover cop Frank Serpico, for which Pacino earned an Academy Award nomination in the category of Best Actor. Used on multiple international formats, this artwork can be found on the Italian, Turkish, and Yugoslavian paper for the picture, like the Yugoslavian poster included in this lot. The painting displays such signs of handling as unobtrusive stains and smudges, however some of these may be from the artistic process. The Yugoslavian poster shows wear from handling and use, but this does not affect the grade of the artwork.

    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
