GrouchoTom Eckersley £300.00
An original, high quality, poster print by the celebrated English poster artist Tom Eckersley. It was designed and printed as part of a set of posters representing film stars of the 1920s and 1930s. The complete set, produced between 1983 and 1990, eventually included Harold Lloyd, Laurel and Hardy, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Buster Keaton, Groucho Marx and Charlie Chaplin. This superb poster demonstrates Eckersley’s ability to convey a direct idea through economical and effective design – in this case by reducing the features of a Holywood legend into a few recognisable shapes and outlines. Posters from this set, which was created for Eckersley’s personal enjoyment rather than as a commercial commission, rarely come onto the market.
