About this Item

Vintage British quad poster for the classic 1950 film. French surrealist director, poet, and artist Jean Cocteau explored fantasies within most of his films such as "The Blood of a Poet" (1932) and "La Belle et la Bette" (1946). With "Orphee," he took on the myth of Orpheus entering the Underworld to persuade death to restore the departed Eurydice to life. The British quad design features some of Cocteau's artwork that would be used again in similar posters for 1960's Le Testament d'Orphee. silkscreen, archivally linen backed with a small amount of restoration along the top edge. 30 inches by 40 inches (76 x 102 cm).
