Is pleased to offer a large selection of authentic, handmade Cuban silk-screen movie posters, many of which work beautifully well together. We also invite you to visit -- and "like" -- our Facebook Page: Facebook. The Cuban Poster Gallery appreciates your business. Here's a graphics art masterpiece -- a rarely seen original Cuban silk-screen poster designed in 1973 for the first Cuban showing of the Soviet movie "El fin de los Liubavin" (The End of the Liubavins). The 1972 movie, set in the early 20th century as the Soviet communists were coming to power, centers around a family of. (wealthy farmers) and their dying way of life in a remote rural village in Siberia. This handmade 20 x 30 inch poster (a standard size so easy and inexpensive to frame) was designed in 1973 by Luis Vega, an award-winning Cuban artist, and crafted in the Cuban Film Institute's silkscreen workshop in. We love the artistic device that Vega used--the fall of a massive old tree--to illustrate the death of rural life in one Soviet village.

Condition of this poster is good for its age; flaws include some foxing, scratches and smudges. This poster has been expertly mounted on archival Japanese paper. Please examine the photos we have posted to judge the condition of the poster for yourself.

Your original End of the Liubavins. "El fin de los Liubavin" (The End of the Liubavins), designed for the first Cuban showing of a 1972 Soviet film. 20 x 30 inches; 51 x 76 cm.

ORIGIN: the ICAIC (Cuban Film Institute) silk-screen workshop in Havana, Cuba. A few words about collecting. For more than 50 years, the. Cuban Film Institute has been designing silk-screened posters for most every movie shown on the island, whether the films originated in Cuba, the United States, Brazil, Japan or Italy. In the midst of the Cold War 1960s and 1970s, many of the subtitled foreign films shown in. Came from the island nation's communist allies in the Soviet Union. Where movie posters are often dominated by images of.

Stars, the Cubans assign a graphic artist to design an original piece of artwork for each film. These posters are widely recognized in graphic design circles. As stylish works of art, handmade one color at a time and often under difficult circumstances at various times, paint and even paper have been in short supply on the island. S silk-screen movie posters are nothing less than museum pieces.

But don't take our word for it! Examples of Cuban poster art can be found in the permanent collections of museums across the globe from the Victoria & Albert in. As well as in prestigious institutions such as the Library of Congress in.

S movie posters are produced in relatively small numbers. Typically, a few hundred copies are made for each film, although the runs have been as low as 50. Responding to demand from collectors, the Cuban Film Institute has re-screened some of its more popular posters.

That's why some posters created in the 1960s and 1970s began reappearing on the. Island in the 1990s and 2000s. Further adding to their collectibility, many of. S vintage posters are imperiled. Although a few hundred copies may have been screened originally, relatively few have survived, due to the island's wet and humid climate, inadequate storage facilities in.

To us, these survivors are rare beauties, even those with obvious flaws. We are proud to have rescued hundreds of posters from almost certain extinction by storing them in an air conditioned, acid-free environment. We consider both to be collectible, and (in response to a question we often get) all of these posters were legally imported because the U.

Government exempts artwork from its economic embargo against Cuba. While the pricier originals are favored by some collectors, the 2nd Edition re-screens are also collectible because they were made in the same Havana workshop as the originals. Note that we never sell unauthorized reproductions that have been cranked out in print shops in the U. To us, these are utterly worthless as collectibles.
