Things To Come
Original British 17 inch x 22 inch Trade Advertisement for the 1936 William Cameron Menzies Sci-Fi Movie THINGS TO COME, based on the book THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME by H.G. Wells and starring Raymond Massey, Ralph Richardson, Cedric Hardwicke, Margaretta Scott, Edward Chapman, Sophie Stewart, Derrick De Marney, Ann Todd and Pearl Argyle.
The striking artwork here by Julius Kupfer Sachs is the same as used for one of the British theatrical posters and makes this an extremely rare and important addition to any serious collector of either Sci-Fi or British posters in general.
Julius Kupfer-Sachs was a busy commercial artist who was popular in the film industry in the 1920s and 1930s. Almost all of his early work was commissioned by UFA (Universum Film AG). Characteristic are his portrayals of people, placing a particularly strong emphasis on the face shapes. His strength was the expressive, realistic drawing, which he mastered perfectly. Another one of his highly stylized posters was for Dziga Vertov’s “Man with the Movie Camera”.
The Advertisement is in very good condition with one vertical centre fold.
