Fragement from Regen, Sadie Thompson, US, Raoul Walsh
“This book has been produced to accompany the exhibition of the same name from 23 September to 11 November 2005 in the Poster Gallery in the Spui tram station, The Hague, the Netherlands, organised by the foundation, Stichting Internationale Affichegalerij”–Leaf facing t.p.
From the Allan Rogg Collection, Pioneer of the Dutch Film Poster: Dolly rudeman, 1902-1980 by Bastiaan Anink and Paul van Yperen is our featured book for November 2010.
“During the 1920s, there was only one woman in the Netherlands who designed film posters. And even though Dolly Rudeman (1902-1980) is far from a household name, her evocative style–fiercely compelling portraits augmented with sparse, dramatic colorization–was called upon to promote a cavalcade of stars–Charlie Chaplin, Lon Chaney, Greta Garbo, Douglas Fairbanks and Gloria Swanson to name but a few. The posterist’s intense character studies are given the attention they so richly deserve in this 72-page publication, featuring 90 full-color illustrations.”
