11TH NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL (1973) Signed poster by Niki de Saint Phalle$3,000.00
New York: Film Society of Lincoln Center, 1973. Vintage original 36 3/4 x 69″ (92 x 174 cm.) poster. Unfolded, there is some minor creasing at edges, just about fine.
Poster signed and numbered (5 out of edition of 144) by French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle. This number and the signature of the artist are featured, in pencil, in the white area towards the bottom of the poster.
Saint Phalle is now increasingly recognized as “one of the most significant female and feminist artists of the 20th century, and one of the few to receive recognition in the male-dominated art world during her lifetime.” (wikipedia).
In homage to three great women directors, the names Leni [Riefenstahl], Shirley [Clarke] and Agnès [Varda] are at the bottom of poster. Saint Phalle chose to make this poster an homage to women’s contributions to world cinema.
