The Leopard [Il Gattopardo]
N.p. N.p., Circa 1963. Vintage borderless reference photograph ofdirector Luchino Visconti while shooting on location for the 1963 film. Stamp of Cahiers du Cinéma on the verso.
Based on Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's 1958 novel. Visconti's classic, spacious homage to the quiet death of the Sicilian aristocracy of the mid-nineteenth century, one of the great films of Italian midcentury cinema. Arguably the apex of Claudia Cardinale's career, and one of a handful of examples of Burt Lancaster's willingness to take on literate, complex roles. Winner of the Palme d'Or.
Shot on location in Rome, Lazio, and Sicily, Italy.
7.25 x 5.25 inches. Near Fine.
