(Lucasfilm, 1980/c.1990s) A high quality giclee on canvas of Roger Kastel's original artwork for the Star Wars - Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back "Gone with the Wind Style" one sheet poster. The piece is signed in blue ink at bottom right, “Roger Kastel.” A small test run of posters was made prior to the release of the film, featuring the artwork as it appears here. Seeing the result, the brass at Fox demanded that the colors be muted, and elements removed to simplify the composition for the poster that went into wide distribution. Only a handful of the test run posters with this far superior artwork are known to exist and they have become some of the most valuable Star Wars franchise posters in the world. This giclee was created directly from Kastel's original painting, and offers a chance to own the artwork in its unadulterated glory, as the artist intended, signed by the hand that created it. Measuring 30”x24”, the giclee is in fine condition with minimal wear.
