These works of actress art display the old fashioned allure of the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, and are painted in the artistic style typical of advertisements from that era. Fantastic displays of color and an emphasis on fashion and drama convey the mood of the film and the times, and promise an entertaining show for those who purchase tickets. Much like modern film posters, these pieces usually include depictions of the leading cast members, and also make use of catchy phrases such as “One of the World’s Great Films, One of the Years Great Events” seen on the movie art print for “The Blue Angel”.
Actress posters of this type are immensely popular with people who enjoy the excitement and personality of the early and middle 1900’s, and are also purchased by those who are fans of the actress herself. People who decorate with a fashion-centered theme commonly make use of framed actress art from this category as well.
