Lot 2535: Superb original painting done by artist Arthur K. Miller, mixed media on canvas, 21.5 x 34.25, featuring a handsome head-and-shoulders portrait of Stewart wearing a suit and tie. This 'personality poster' is one in a continuing series, inspired by those created by the major film studios in the 1930s and 1940s to promote their stars, largely in the European markets. Intentionally distressed for vintage appeal, signed at the bottom by Miller with his last name, and signed again on the reverse edge in black felt tip, "Arthur K. Miller, 2013, 'James Stewart (circa 1939),' Personality Poster #10." Rolled and in fine condition. In this series of banners, Miller utilized mixed media on raw canvas in a 'faux-antique' style developed to capture the essence of pop cultural artifacts once lost to the ages.
