While we’re aware that web searches generate different results depending on the where and when, we were still a bit thrilled when we did a random search today on Italian poster artist Sandro Symeoni and came up as the number one result. That has to do with having featured his art in three different posts over the last couple of years. Today, we have another rare Symeoni, a piece of production art he painted for the Clint Eastwood western A Fistful of Dollars in 1964. It’s truly brilliant. We also located several more of Symeoni’s posters and uploaded those below. Symeoni died in 2007. There was a posthumous exhibition in Italy last year that raised his profile a bit, and we suspect collectors will focus on his work even more in the coming years. If you want to see a bit more on him, definitely do so at our previous posts here, here, and here.

Back in April we showed you a nice poster for the Italian sexploitation documentary Inghilterra nuda, and talked briefly about the proliferation of such films during the ’60s and ’70s. The promo art was painted by the legendary Sandro Symeoni, an Italian illustrator who has more than 3,000 posters and record sleeves to his credit. Below is a small collection of this master’s work for your Sunday enjoyment. If these pique your interest, a cursory search on the web will turn up many more pieces.

This Sandro Symeoni poster is a mighty fine piece of art for what is basically just a low budget documentary about the sexual mores of England. Back in the ’60s a lot of these types of films were produced after the success of the 1962 Italian shockumentary Mondo Cane. This one is Italian as well, directed by Vittotio de Sisti, and released under the name Inghilterra nuda in Italy, and L’Angleterre nue in France. It premiered in those countries today in 1969.
