    Description

    A Fistful of Dollars (Unidis, R-1968). Original Tempera Painting by Michelangelo Papuzza (13" X 18").
    A beautiful very brightly colored tempera painting by noted Sicilian artist Michelangelo Papuzza. This is an alternate unused poster proposal, and is the only copy. Mr. Papuzza's other style painting was used for the Italian 1968 70mm release. Star Wars collectors will know the name, as Papuzza did the artwork for the very popular 1978 Italian 2-foglio for the science fiction film's release. The provenance is also very interesting. This is from the collection of Edoardo Ezio Pizzi, the man who handled all publicity and press relations for Unidis and Jolly Films and handled this film from pre-production through release and its re-releases. A terrific piece of art featuring Eastwood's "Joe" literally carrying away from all the dead bodies...a fistful of dollars. There are precious few opportunities to obtain original art connected to major, landmark films. Don't miss this chance! Near Mint/Mint.
