N.p. San Marco, Circa 1969. Two vintage borderless reference photographs of Pier Paolo Pasolini and Maria Callas on the set of the 1969 film. With the stamp of photographer Mario Tursi on the verso.

Based on the ancient Greek myth, and loosely on the 431 BC play by Euripides, wherein the titular character famously kills her sons as revenge against an unfaithful husband. The sole feature film appearance of noted opera legend Maria Callas, one in which she curiously does not sing.

Shot on location in Turkey, Italy, and Syria.

9.5 x 7 inches. Near Fine.
