- Full Description
Classic Italian film poster art is renowned as being among the most accomplished, creative and dynamic of its kind. And as shown here, horrific, violent, erotic and yet artistically powerful. From the post-war period through to the 1980s, Italian artists consistently produced posters with sumptuously stunning designs and imagery--not least in the horror and exploitation genres, for which compositions almost invariably included curvaceous female figures in jeopardy, juxtaposed with the iconography of fantasy and terror.
120 film posters by a wide range of acclaimed Italian artists, created for both indigenous and foreign-language film productions, including some interesting new takes on very famous American exploitation films. Full-color, full-page reproductions showcase some of the world’s most innovative and seductive poster design.
Some of these remind us of the sensationalized horror "menace" pulps of the 1930s, often with extreme violence to women. Although we never support this, it's part of history and thus fair game for historical surveys such as this. But we did have to be careful about which images we have pictured here, avoiding the most extreme.
