Art by Ercole Brini (1913-1989)


79 x 55 in. (201 x 140 cm)


This musical romance was directed by Stanley Donen and written by Leonard Gershe, and features numbers by George and Ira Gershwin. Audrey Hepburn stars alongside Fred Astaire, who was in the original 1927 Broadway show of the same name. Ercole Brini captured the beautiful Audrey Hepburn in a few simple, but extremely effective brush strokes, and in his own unique style. Exceptionally rare Italian poster that does not surface very often.
