A hand-drawn final poster sketch by the Brothers Hildebrandt from the promotion of Desmond Davis' action fantasy Clash of the Titans. Artists Greg and Tim Hildebrandt created only three movie posters together: one for Star Wars: A New Hope, an unused one for Barbarella, and a theatrical release poster for this film.
This sketch featuring Medusa looming over Perseus (Harry Hamlin), Andromeda (Judi Bowker), and Pegasus is the final sketch made before the illustration was transferred over to the final painting for the original poster. It is also the only completed film poster sketch ever made by both brothers.
The sketch is rendered in pencil on vellum, signed by the Hildebrandts, and mounted behind glass in a wooden frame. It remains in good overall condition with tearing to the top corners of the vellum, creasing from storage, and some edge wear. Dimensions (framed): 35.5" x 39" x 2" (90.25 cm x 99 cm x 5 cm)
