Gilda
Columbia, 1948. Italian 4-foglio poster, style A, linen-backed. Artwork by Alfredo Capitani. One of the most sought-after Italian posters in the world, Gilda only occasionally surfaces on the open market.
Provenance: The Hastings Collection

Columbia's Italian in-house painter, Anselmo Ballester, is the artist most famous for his posters of Rita Hayworth, yet this poster was in fact designed by Alfredo Capitani (1895-1985). Capitani was born in Ciampino and studied in Rome before setting up his own agency with Luigi Martinati in 1926. They worked on film sets and advertising posters before Capitani moved into designing film posters in the late 1930s. He also created posters such films as Marked Woman (1937), Jezebel (1938), and Dead Reckoning (1947) but Gilda remains his most famous work.
