- Full Description
French artists produced some of the most inspired and inventive movie poster artwork, completely new or completely redrawing iconic images. These artists each rate a chapter: Boris Grinsson, Clément Hurel, Jan Mascii, René Ferracci, and Michel Landi. Quarter, half and full page images include Fantome de l'Opera, Fantomas, La Grande Illusion, Le Vaucon Maltais, Superargo Contre Diabolikus, Irma La Douce, Taxi Driver, Le Frisson des Vampires (by Philippe Druillet), La Trace (by Moebius), Gilda (with Rita Hayworth), and Une Parisienne and Come Dance with Me with Brigitte Bardot.
Even with so many books about movie posters in general, none has ever addressed this specific subject. The Gallery looks at the anthropomorphic animal art of the 19th century illustrator J.J. Granville, a pioneer of that genre and a brilliant artist.
There's also appearances of Orson Wells, John Wayne, Sophia Loren (several), Clint Eastwood (a superb painting for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly), Gregory Peck, Lee Van Cleef, Sean Connery (as James Bond), Charlton Heston (La Planete des Singes), Paul Newman (Cool Hand Luke).
Illustrators is the British art quarterly devoted to the finest illustration art ever published. It guides you through the stories behind the artists and their art, with features written by some of the leading authorities on this important art form.
As well as building into an indispensable reference library, Illustrators gives readers an insight into the creative process, from idea to sketch to painting, and from painting to the image seen by millions. Truly fabulous artwork abounds in every issue, much of the art taken from scans of the original work.
