The crease issues are rampant with all AN prints and Titanic's. Looks like someone numbering or signing may have handled them improperly...

Yeah, it was a strong show. One of the things I heard several people say, was that once they got into the gallery and saw everything in person, they ended up buying a lot more than they had expected to going in. Definitely encourage folks in the Austin area to go check it out, if they missed the opening, even if it's just to look at everything.
So it goes...

Whoever numbered them may have been a 5 year old since the numbers are basically illegible, so there’s a pretty good chance that same person was incapable of handling the prints properly.

Ascenseur pour l'échafaud, but its not in a restaurant. Great movie with gorgeous soundtrack who need a black/white print.
Thanks, I'll check it out. Dig the poster.
Very good film and nice print. That said, I don't recall a scene with Jeanne Moreau smoking next to the elevator in the film.

And, yes, the Miles Davis soundtrack is great.
The movie's on FilmStruck for those who haven't seen it. Looking forward to it.

Barnes and Nobles is having their 50% off Criterion Sale also if you want to scoop there.

Was definitely a really good show. I just love seeing his originals in person.
My Noob Confession: I used to actually type out "Drymount" before I knew It automatically changed it...

Yep. It's like he has a morsel of an idea, but rushes it, desperate to merge images.

Much like the titles involved, this show's output is a random if not odd swath of stuff thrown out there by an artist clearly not incredibly inspired at this point.
