Cleopatra is a hand pulled, fine art movie poster lithograph by S2 Art from their Art of the Movies collection. This is an exact recreation of the 1917 theatrical release one-sheet. The one-sheet is pulled on a rare, antique, German Dufa printing press on Coventry archival paper.
The 1917, Cleopatra feature length silent film starred Theda Bara in the title role.
This is not print or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
This one-sheet was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 2000 under the guidance of the Ré Society Ltd, and S2 Art company. It was created in partnership with the American Film Institute's, 100 American Classic Movie Posters.
It is based on the vintage poster first created in 1917 to promote the Cleopatra, feature length silent film starring Theda Bara.
This lithograph bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist, David Copson, is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original Golden Age poster.
The lithograph is sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower middle border, by a curator at S2 Editions.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity by S2 Art Group, Ltd. Item is packaged and shipped in a museum quality tube.
Dimensions: 27" x 41"
