This lovely French poster credits the writing of Tristan Corbiere, Alphonse Daudet and Arthur Rimbaud. "Arthur Rimbaud was born in 1854 in Charleville, a provincial town near the Belgian border for which he showed lifelong scorn but that he never managed to quit. He spun out masterpiece after masterpiece in a literary career that lasted only half a decade, abruptly abandoning poetry forever in his early 20s. His work was overshadowed by his behavior during his flights to Paris, especially a love affair with the older poet Paul Verlaine, who left his wife and child for Rimbaud and then shot him — not fatally — when Rimbaud tried to leave him."

The Poster Art of Renato Casaro
AN ITALIAN MASTER OF POSTER DESIGN!
Renato Casaro’s prolific career began in 1953, aged 19, at the famous Studio Favalli in Rome, part of the legendary Cinecittà studios. He would later go on to design and paint posters for many of the biggest directors in the world forming close friendships with the likes of Dino De Laurentiis, Sergio Leone and Bernardo Bertolucci. His brilliant portrayal of actors and his innovative use of color and composition saw him much in demand both in Italy and abroad.

Most recently Quentin Tarantino hired Casaro (along with other great artists Steven Chorney, Martin Duhovic, and Tom Richmond) to create faux movie poster props for the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The images Casaro designed portray the Leonardo DiCaprio character Rick Dalton in two fictitious Italian Westerns: Nebraska Jim and Uccidimi subito Ringo, Disse il Gringo (Kill Me Now Ringo, Said the Gringo).
