original Hildebrandt poster in good condition, vintage
Vintage original Star Wars poster, from the painting by the Hildebrandt brothers
This rare poster is in very good and original condition, bought form a Star Wars collector in the US 10 years ago, it was still rolled up and in transparent plastic it came in, the poster has never been framed and it's in very good condition,
No discoloration, the colors are still incredibly vibrant and pop they out like the poster were brand new, it's never seen daylight!
This is the perfect display piece, very collectible, just needs to be displayed.
It has some rippling from being rolled up, it will fade out once flattened, it will perfectly frame out.
Aprox. 60 x 90 cm, on 90 grams machine coated paper.
Painted by the famous twin brothers, Greg and Tim Hildebrandt, in just thirty-six hours due to a tight deadline. The poster created one of the signature images of the 1970s with this striking, cosmic tableau showing the Skywalker family. The Hildebrandt's unique take on Tom Jung artwork was enthusiastically embraced by the public. T-shirts and pin-up posters bearing the Hildebrandt artwork became wildly popular, capturing at once the fantasy, humanity, and uniqueness of the Star Wars experience. Sales of merchandise bearing the Hildebrandt image were unprecedented, successfully carrying the Star Wars message into schoolyards and suburban neighborhoods. This painting was used as the main theatrical poster in a number of countries (UK, Spain and Turkish), and in the United States it became one of the first commercial Star Wars posters. Incredibly, the first version of it was without the droids and was created in a feverish, nonstop effort ! George Lucas asked for the droids to be added and for our signatures to be larger. So they made those changes directly at the ad agency, and off it went!
One of the most important artifact of ScienceFictionArchives.com, the original painting was display in our 2012 exhibition "Star Wars Toys" at Paris Louvre Museum (Les Arts Décoratifs).
Will be packed with great care in a thick quality tube and send with track and trace.
