Odd City, in partnership with the Paramount Pictures Licensing, is proud to announce a limited edition screen print for Francis Ford Coppola’s classic, The Godfather, by Laurent Durieux. This 1972 film, adapted for the screen by Coppola, is widely considered the most influential film in the gangster genre. Artist Laurent Durieux, in his distinctive style, has captured a turning point moment from the film.
The Laurent Durieux Godfather prints will be in a regular edition, variant edition and wood edition. The wood edition will have the regular edition color way.
These prints represent the first set of three, one for each of the three films.
Here is what the artist had to say about this special project:
“The Godfather films are amongst my favorite movies of all time, period. I grew up with these movies. So many movies are referring to GF nowadays, and fantastic TV shows like The Sopranos (which I love) hint constantly to the masterpieces from Francis Ford Coppola. The Godfather inhabits us all. It’s part of our general culture. It should be taught at school! It is such a milestone in cinema history too! It’s really impossible to say anything negative about The Godfather. It doesn’t get any better than this!”
All editions are printed by SP Productions in Brussels and will be personally signed and numbered by Laurent Durieux. These prints are expected to begin shipping the first week of December
The Laurent Durieux Godfather prints will go on sale Monday, November 17, 2014 on the Odd City Store around 11am CST, and will begin shipping the first week of December 2014.
