“A Bigger Splash”…Opening in only three London arthouse theatres this film became in instant success breaking all previous records. David Hockney designed the poster basing it on his own original work “Portrait of an Artist” where this original 1973 UK quad film poster features Peter Schlesinger (in & out of the pool). Originally folded (as issued) in superb condition; it really is stunning and perfectly suited to the landscape format of the UK quad film poster. One of the best looking and most collectable film posters by one of our greatest living modern artist’s. Incredibly scarce item of original British film movie memorabilia presented here in investment grade condition…A very important film for art lovers, and a very important piece of gay cinema.
