Sea Fury (original artwork) Price: £295 | Size: approx 10.5" x 8" | Grade: Near Mint | Year: 1958 A unique and original artwork for the UK film poster for Sea Fury (1958). This is an early layout proposal by leading poster artist Eric Pulford who ran his own studio within the Downton Agency in London in what was the golden era for British film poster art. Original artwork like this is incredibly rare as they were routinely destroyed after use. This is especially interesting as it features a hitherto unkown execution that never went into production, although Eric did design the final version as well. This particular item was saved by one of the messenger boys whose job it was to ferry artwork around between artist, agency and film studio 50 years ago. He has kept it until now and is happy not only to guarantee the provenance but also to provide a little history describing his time there.
