A Brothers Hildebrandt hand-painted Princess Leia illustration from Topps' 1996 Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire trading card set. This series of 100 cards featured artwork by noted artists Greg and Tim Hildebrandt, best known for producing several popular posters for the promotion of the franchise's films.
This painting for card number 47 is rendered in mixed media on wood labeled "Leia Prepares for Xizor" and signed "GREG & TIM HILDEBRANDT" on the bottom right corner. This is one of the few, or possibly the only, licensed consumer products pieces that featured such a risquÃ© depiction of Leia. It is in excellent overall condition with a small chip on one of the bottom corners and some paint residue on the reverse. Dimensions: 14 3/4" x 11" (37.5 cm x 28 cm)
