Porgy and Bess

by Rehak
YEAR:
1959
SIZE:
33 1/2 x 24 inches (85 x 61 cm)
REFERENCE NUMBER:
2903

DESCRIPTION:

A poster from the first film version of the legendary opera set among the black residents of a fishing village in 1912 South Carolina. The story revolves around Bess, a woman with a disreputable history whom attempts to break free from her abusive lover to find shelter in one who will overlook her complicated past. It has been both praised as a bold attempt to exalt African American vernacular in the operatic canon, and pilloried as a patronizing caricature of black life in the early 20th century.
