A set of four original control panel designs created during the production of Richard Donner's 1978 superhero film Superman.
This collection comes from the estate of Oscar®-nominated production designer Harry Lange. Lange was working for NASA's Future Project department when Stanley Kubrick hired him to conceive and design the technology featured in the ground-breaking 2001: A Space Odyssey, for which he received an Oscar® nomination. Lange then went on to play a key role in numerous noteworthy films, including Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Moonraker.
These designs were created using pastels, paint and pencil on card collages with some contemporary clippings added to the screens. The smaller piece is signed by Harry Lange alongside a scale annotation. Three collages are presented in plastic sleeves within large white card mounts; the other is mounted on black card.
All of the pieces remain in very good condition with slight wear to the mounts from storage. The largest of the art pieces measures 112 cm x 81 cm (44" x 31 ¾").
Materials: Card, Paper, Plastic.
