Art by Antonio Fernandez Reboiro (b. 1935)


29½ x 19¾in. (75 x 50 cm)


This French musical comedy was written and directed by Jacques Demy, and stars Catherine Deneuve, George Chakiris and Françoise Dorléac, together with Gene Kelly. It tells the story of two sisters, Delphine and Solange, who live in the seaside town of Rochefort. Delphine is a dancing teacher and Solange teaches the piano. The film takes place over one weekend, when the circus is in town. Both sisters are looking for love and a life that will take them away from their home town. Cuban posters have a very distinctive vibrant style. Antonio Fernandez Reboiro designed many film posters and is a highly respected artist, with works in MoMA's permanent collection. This very rare original release Cuban poster does not surface very often.
