Portrait of Gina Lollobrigida in Notre-Dame de Paris (film)

Arriving in Paris during the 1920s, Vicente Cristellys settled in Montparnasse like many of his colleagues from the Ecole de Paris. He paints characters and scenes largely inspired by his native Spain. It was after a bohemian period that he began to illustrate cinema posters and he managed to settle in the Parisian cinematographic milieu. For example, he will sign posters for The Big Sleep, The Man in The iron mask and many other films. Here he paints Gina Lollobrigida in her gypsy costume from the film Notre-Dame de Paris (1956) with Anthony Quinn
