    Description

    The Young Lions by Enzo Nistri (20th Century Fox, 1958). Very Fine. Signed Original Mixed Media Preliminary Poster Artwork on Paper (14.25" x 19.75).
    Offered for the first time at Heritage is this piece of watercolor and gouache artwork by Enzo Nistri, a preliminary poster illustration whose final version can be found on the Italian 2 - fogli. Marlon Brando, Dean Martin, and Montgomery Clift turn in terrific performances in this Edward Dmytryk picture, all three of which are featured here with costar Hope Lange. Bearing Nistri's signature in the lower right, this painting has slight edge wear, corner bends, pinholes, paper lifts in the borders, and smudges. Some of these issues are due to the creative process, as is the strip of cellophane tape in the right border.
