Son of the Sheik is a hand pulled, fine art poster lithograph by S2 Art from their Art of the Movies collection. This is an exact recreation of the 1926 theatrical release one-sheet poster. It's pulled on Rives BFK French hand-made 1009% cotton paper through a rare, 1800s, French Marinoni Voirin printing press.
This is not print or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
The Son of the Sheik features Rudolph Valentino in the title role and Vilma Banky.
This one-sheet was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 1997, 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.
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 right 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"
