Original silkscreen poster for the film by Humberto Solas, silkscreen reprint 2004
Full-size original silkscreen Cuban Movie poster for the film "Lucia" directed by Humberto Solas. Artist is Raul Martinez, from 1968. Silkscreen in multiple colors on cream-colored paper. Published by ICAIC, the Cuban Film Institute. Official reprint 2004.
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.
