Descripción

Original serigraph designed by artist Henry Pearson for the Sixth New York Film Festival, held at the Lincoln Center on September 17-28, 1968.The New York Film Festival was founded in 1963 by Amos Vogel and Richard Roud, and to this day serves as a major taste-maker for American cinephiles, bringing the best films from around the world by directors established, new, and forgotten. The 1968 festival began with Jiri Menzel's "Capricious Summer," concluded with Milos Forman's "The Fireman's Ball" and featured "The Boy with the Green Hair" by Joseph Losey and "They Live By Night" by Nicholas Ray among its retrospective features.As influential and forward-thinking as the festival is, it is matched by its iconic poster designs. Developed by Vera List, a New York City art collector and philanthropist, the poster program commissioned some the most famous artist of the day to design posters that would function as much as art as advertisement. In addition to Pearson, artists who have designed posters for the festival include Larry Rivers, Saul Bass, Bruce Conner, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cindy Sherman.Amos Vogel (1921-2012) was one of the most influential cineastes in New York City. He is best known for his bestselling book "Film as a Subversive Art" (1974) and as the founder of the New York City avantgarde ciné-club Cinema 16 (1947-1963), where he was the first programmer to present films by Roman Polanski, John Cassavetes, Nagisa Oshima, Jacques Rivette and Alain Resnais as well as early and important screenings by American avant-gardists of the time like Stan Brakhage, Maya Deren, James Broughton, Kenneth Anger, Sidney Peterson, Bruce Conner, Carmen D'Avino and many others. In 1963, together with Richard Roud, he founded the New York Film Festival, and served as its program director until 1968. In 1973, Vogel started the Annenberg Cinematheque at the University of Pennsylvania and was eventually given a Chair for film studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, where he taught and lectured for two decades.Fine condition, with light wrinkles at the bottom third. 29.25 X 45 inches, linen backed and rolled. From the estate of New York Film Festival founder Amos Vogel. N° de ref. de la librería 129363
