The Son of the Sheik Vintage Movie Poster Lithograph Rudolph Valentino S2 Art
Condition: Mint, unused, never framed nor hung

This is a hand pulled, fine art lithograph of the original movie poster titled: The Son of the Sheik. The vintage one-sheet was originally created in 1926 to advertise the release of The Son of the Sheik, starring Rudolph Valentino.

This lithograph of the original one-sheet was re-created as a fine art lithograph, in 1997, on a rare antique 19th century hand-pulled printing press in affiliation with the American Film Institute's "100 American Classic Movie Posters". This is the same printing press that was used to create the vintage posters over 100 years ago. There are only 5 of these antique presses in existence, today.

Hand drawn plates are made, one for each colour, and then the plates are hand pulled through the vintage press one colour at a time. This is the exact same method that was used to create the beautiful vintage movie posters of the past.

The result is vibrant rich colours and crisp clean lines. This is a true work of art.
