L'Eclisse [The Eclipse]
N.p. N.p., Circa 1962. Two vintage borderless reference photographs from the 1962 film, one of Michelangelo Antonioni with Alain Delon and Monica Vitti, and one of Antonioni and crew shooting a scene in Rome from scaffolding built in the water. One with French "L'Eclipse" stamp, and provenance stamp of film historian "Maurice Bessy" on verso, one with "P.I.P." and "Copyright" stamps on verso.
A woman's newfound relationship with a power-hungry stockbroker gradually erodes as she becomes dissatisfied with his shallow interests. The final film in Antonioni's modernity trilogy, all starring Vitti, preceded by "L'avventura" (1960) and "La notte" (1961). Awarded the Jury Special Prize, and nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival.
Shot on location in Rome and Verona, Italy.
6.75 x 9.25 inches and 9.5 x 7 inches. Very Good plus with light creasing and edgewear.
