Lancelot of the Lake [Lancelot du Lac]

N.p. N.p., Circa 1974. Vintage borderless reference photograph of Robert Bresson and crew on the set of the 1974 film, with two provenance stamps of film scholar and author "J. P. Berthome" on verso.

Bresson’s bloody take on the King Arthur legend was an expansion of the aesthetic he had already developed, where the violence that was once implied became a reality—though certainly still quite surreal.

Shot on location in Noirmoutier-en-L'Ile, France.

9.5 x 7 inches. Near Fine.

Rosenbaum 1000.
