The WestgateGallery.com movie poster site has extended their Christmas sale for another two weeks. The site offers some truly beautiful vintage film posters for sale, most remarkably in the area of giallo and horror films from directors Dario Argento, Sergio Martino, Albert DeMartino, Juan Antonio Bardem, Maurizio Lucidi, and Mario Bava.
There are also some phenomenal adult film posters from the 1970’s and 1980’s that feature Seka, Ginger Lynn, Ron Jeremy, Gloria Leonard, Marilyn Chambers, and Vanessa Del Rio to name a few. The movies themselves weren’t necessarily anything to write home about, but the artwork was really nice.
What’s really amazing is just how artfully and artistically painted the adult posters are. They are often a lot better than the films that they advertised! Looking through the images of the posters offered for sale, one is struck by how different movie poster artwork is done today. Pretty much thrown together on a Mac, much of what passes for movie poster art is done without input from the film’s respective director. The posters available for sale on WestgateGallery.com are, for the most part, painted by true artists, and would look great in a living room, bedroom, or den.
Check them out and score some amazing artwork for your house or apartment!
