Heavy Traffic (1973)|
Poster art of Michael From Heavy Traffic and Carol from Heavy Traffic.
This is the orginal artwork used for one of two main posters used to promote the film.
This piece is comprised of a backing board with the painted characters and an overlay cel which has the black character outlines. Inscription along lower right corner in graphite reads " Note: Shoot Thru Acetate".
Artwork measures 19.5" x 24".
As visible in the image, the overlay cel is affixed to the art board with masking tape along the upper edge and a small 1.25" length of tape halfway across lower edge. There is a tear in the cel material halfway across the lower edge that measures 2.5" which has been reinforced with clear tape. The corners exhibit signs of wear, which is common for production art of this nature. There is evidence of two minor 0.5" areas of tape and tape residue by the upper edge of the cel. These can all be easily matted out.
