Victor Victoria key art for movie poster and Broadway play by John Alvin
Original art for the iconic finished one sheet movie poster for Victor Victoria by John Alvin, framed and in protective UV plexi. Original illustrative movie art is extremely hard to find, especially key art for a well known production, and this is done by one of the most revered artists to create campaign art. Alvin passed away in 2007. ArtInsights has exclusivity for representation of the John Alvin estate and his wife Andrea supplies a certificate of authenticity for each original.
John Alvin's art is becoming more and more valuable, as evidenced by the record breaking price for his E.T. key art at auction, where it went for nearly 400k.
One of the best things about this art, apart from how iconic it is, is that the design was used not only for the movie but was also the art for the play.

The new book The Art of John Alvin by his wife Andrea Alvin released by Titan Books is, we hope, the first of several books that will show his importance to the history of film.
