Homecomings - Gianluigi Coppola, Original artwork, 1966
1966, mixed media
Copolla was commissioned by legendary Penguin art director Germano Facettiand under his guidance was inspired to createa series of ground breaking covers. \
Penguin’s 1966 reprint of C.P. Snow’s 1956 novel is a perfect example of Coppola’s use of montage, creating crisp graphic lines out of textured art work and high contrast black and white photography set on arresting primary colours.
The artwork is sold with an original Homecomings paperback that features the Coppola illustration.
The original painting art board is approximately 26 cm wide x 35 cm tall. The artwork is float mounted on to conservation grade mountboard and presented in a white wooden box frame glazed with anti-reflective glass.
