Full-size original silkscreen Cuban Movie poster for the Hungarian film in color titled "Jinete Fantasma", directed by Robert Ban. Artist is Bachs, dated 1977. Silkscreen in black, brown and blue on light cream-colored paper. Published by ICAIC, the Cuban Film Institute.
Sheet size: 20 x 30 inches
Condition: Light edge rubbing and some minimal foxing at edges. The background is a true light cream color.
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 difficult to ascertain the exact date of printing. Since this paper is creamy and very slightly foxed, I believe this print to be a true original poster.
"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.
