“Lust…Murder…Dessert. Bon Appetit !”

Designed by The Creative Partnership this stunning film poster has elements of The Last Supper and a Hieronymus Bosch painting; beautifully rich in detail and colour it is the perfect representation of Peter Greenaway’s cult classic 1989 movie… “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”. The artistic imagery of the British UK quad is country unique and by far the best design for the film.  Any paper for Greenaway’s cult movie is scarce with the British UK quad style being the most desired making this original 1989 film poster highly sought after. Originally rolled (as issued) this scarce piece presents in excellent original unrestored condition with striking design. A very hard poster to find in any condition which makes this high grade investment condition piece a real rarity . Highly collectable original film memorabilia from a true cult classic movie.
