Description:
Darkly alluring original poster design artwork for the feature film Reds (Paramount Pictures, 1981) by cinematic art legend Bob Peak. Reds is an epic film that was co-written, produced, and directed by Warren Beatty. The plot revolves around the life and career of John Reed, the journalist and writer who chronicled the Russian Revolution in his book Ten Days That Shook the World. Beatty stars in the lead role alongside Diane Keaton as Louise Bryant. This poster design art features the characters portrayed by Beatty and Keaton with Russian red light illuminating their features.



The design is most impressive, masterfully rendered in mixed media that includes gouache, pastels, charcoal and airbrush and signed by Peak at lower right. It's a real shame that the studio decided not to use this wonderful moody design, which is so gripping and impactful, deciding instead on a much weaker photographic image for the main one sheet poster.



In excellent condition with image measuring approx. 20" x 25."
