Quarto Potere (Citizen Kane)
Poster for the Italian release of Citizen Kane. (date of poster is an estimate.)This fine poster for the Italian release of Citizen Kane portrays the title character in the full tide of his rise to political power, delivering a fiery campaign speech. The realistic gouache rendering, obviously based on a photograph, and hugely enlarged in this 2-sheet poster, yields a result that is effectively, powerfully cinematic.
