    Description

    Gone With the Wind master six-sheet poster art. (MGM, 1939) Vintage original concept poster art accomplished in pencil, gouache and airbrush on 32 x 30.5 in. artist's board visible through 42 x 42 in. gold gilt red faux velvet-matted frame, depicting the famous burning of Atlanta scene. This painting, attributed to Armando Seguso, was used as a model for eventual print-ready art to produce a 6-sheet poster for the 1940 general release of the film, immediately following the limited screenings "road show" release. For filming the burning of Atlanta, new false facades were built in front of the Selznick studio back lot's many old abandoned sets (including the great gates from King Kong), and Selznick himself operated the controls for the explosives that burned them down. Sources at the time put the estimated production costs at $3.85 million, making it the second most expensive film made up to that point, with only Ben-Hur (1925) having cost more. Also depicting the notorious scene in which "Rhett" (Clark Gable) carries "Scarlett" (Vivien Leigh) up the grand staircase to their bedroom. Exhibiting production wear and age with a 2 in. tear at the left margin assumed to have been made at the time of creation. In vintage very good to fine condition.
