Hand-Painted Film Posters For The Eastman Theatre From 1924-1928
NEW YORK, NY — Madalena Mania continues with a for-sale show in NYC opening this weekend.
Timed to coincide with the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition, Batiste Madalena: Hand-Painted Film Posters for the Eastman Theatre, 1924—-1928, which runs through April 6, 2009, Hirschl & Adler Galleries is pleased to present Coming Attractions: Poster Paintings for the Cinema by Batiste Madalena. Like the MoMA show, the Hirschl & Adler exhibition draws on a singular collection of original poster paintings by Madalena from the cinema’s golden age of silent film, which were saved from obscurity by documentary film maker Steven Katten and his wife, Judith.
