These are great! :clap:

I watch that Bravo Work of Art show and a few weeks back the assignment was "Pop Art" and none of them got it. Tim Oliveira really gets it. This will be a great companion piece to his Marilyn from about a year ago. Stoked.

Agreed. And with no offense intended to Marilyn, it's Rita Hayworth (aka Margarita Cansino) who for me is the female icon of icons. The fact that she was married to Orson Welles and they gave birth to 'The Lady From Shanghai' (not to mention a daughter, as well) makes her an even greater star in my book. Talk about class. :notworthy:

Now the only question is: which one of the three prints?

I'm not sure it's sepia toned Binky79 - I was looking at all three also trying to make a decision and noticed that the photo of the purple/yellow variant seems to be different. The entire image is yellowed - maybe the difference between a photo with a flash vs. no flash or lighting. It think it's B&W like the others, just the snapshot of it is off a little. (look at the color of the white paper in the borders in comparison)

The poster district has the largest images I've seen of this piece. http://www.posterdistrict.com/archives/3441

Yeah, It was my mistake. It doesn't change my opinion of that one though. I hope I can pick one up on Thursday.

Really like the third version. Not a fan of the black lines though.

Would like it more like this..

respectfully disagree here. The photoshopped image now looks too 'soft' and the image doesn't 'pop' as well.

Great new set of prints by Tim. Love the color palettes here. Having a hard time which of the 3 I like best as I like them all!

These are NICE :notworthy: I was curious to see how the artist would follow up his last two releases, especially his Marilyn print. As with Marilyn, I'm really digging the understated, sultry, pop-tastic style here with Rita. Awesome. One thing Rita has that Marilyn doesn't: three colorways! (Oh, and 36-24-36). Easy +3 here!
