TRAVELLING PLAYERS, THE [O THIASOS] (1975; 1976 first UK release)


Vintage original 30 x 40″ (76 x 102 cm.) maquette artwork painting, and 30 x 40″ (76 x 102 cm.) quad poster, UK. Eva Kotamanidou, Vangelis Kazan, dir: Theo Angelopoulos; Artificial Eye. Angelouolos’ staggering retelling of the story of Electra, set in 20th-century Greece between the years 1939 and 1952. The film is composed of long, single, unbroken takes (many of them 10-minutes long or even longer), and even a film as stylistically complex as Hitchcock’s Rope is, by comparison, simple.

We are offering here the original maquette/artist’s design (in pencil, gouache and watercolor) and the actual poster itself. Maquette has two vertical creases, but is otherwise unfolded; there are a few small tears at the top; there are some scattered traces of extra ink and paint from when the painting was executed, VERY GOOD. Poster is unfolded and FINE.
