Issued for a 1970s Italian re-release of Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 explicit English language crime thriller Blow-Up, this stunning country of origin poster features the same artwork as the original Italian release. Alongside Vanessa Redgrave, Jane Birkin and sixties model Veruschka, David Hemmings starred as a swinging London photographer who unwittingly photographs a murder. One of the most acclaimed films of the counterculture era, Blow-Up was an international success and remains one of the seminal works of the sixties.
Conservation backed on linen with no restoration. Backing has smoothed and diminished the standard machine folds as issued. A few light creases to lower margin and upper edge of pink ground. A few blunt scratches through credits with no surface colour loss. Image and colours excellent.
