Full-size original silkscreen Cuban Movie poster for the film "The Godfather", produced by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino. Artist is Niko, dated 1974. Silkscreen in 4 colors on light cream-colored paper. Published by ICAIC, the Cuban Film Institute.
Sheet size: 20 x 30 inches
Condition: Very light edge rubbing from storage, otherwise clean and bright
NOTE: Since many Cuban movie posters have been re-issued in the last few years (the re-issues are also silkscreen prints, created in the same manner as the originals and indistinguishable except that the paper is bright and white), it is often not possible to ascertain the exact date of printing. Since the paper of this poster is bright and white, it was probably recently printed.
"Cuban silkscreen posters, whether new or old, can have original printing defects such as uneven borders, thick ink areas and uneven color and texture. Older posters can have some foxing, edge wear, possible bleed through, and cracking from dryness". These are the facts of Cuban production and storage in a humid climate.
