Scarce Cuban poster on eBay

A scarce Cuban film poster by graphic artist Antonio Fernandez Reboiro, based on a Muybridge horse sequence, is currently on eBay.

From the seller’s text:

Cuban movie posters were made using the handmade silkscreen process. Aesthetically, the paint, applied in thick layers gave these posters a unique texture that is closer to a painting than to posters. Artistically they are among the best designed in the world and many prizes were awarded to their creators.

In the majority of titles, only 250-500 handmade posters were ever printed and except for a selected group of collectors, most people disposed of them by dressing walls or recycling. Only a fraction of those survived until now. This is one of the very few. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity from CubanPosters.

TITLE: Rodeo-  Cuban film Directed by Enrique Pineda Barnet
YEAR: 1972
ARTIST: Reboiro
MEDIUM: Silkscreen
SIZE: 20″x30″= 51x76cm
