A Tom Jung original Lord of the Rings concept artwork for the one sheet poster
United Artists, 1978. Acrylic on illustration board, signed ("Tom Jung") to center bottom, matted and framed. A marked difference in style was noted in Jung's work on this piece compared to his previous artwork. As he commented, "There's probably a lot of posters I've done that people aren't aware of: Papillon, The Man Who Would Be King, and ... Lord of the Rings." The artwork, showing Gandalf, holding his sword Glamdring, with two Hobbits, was created for the Style B poster and features the memorable image that most fans associate with the film.
Provenance: the collection of Tom Jung.
Overall: 26.5 x 30 in.; within mat: 18.5 x 22 in.
