Cat. #0005033: INGMAR BERGMAN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare and uncommonly early signature in blue ballpoint pen on an irregularly-trimmed 2.75 x 4-inch off-white card, attained around 1949, the year that writing implement was introduced, and decorated with an image clipped from an English film magazine. In good condition. Three-time Oscar-winning Swedish director Ingmar Bergman was a veritable giant of 20th-century cinema, remembered for bleak, introspective films, grappling with complex family dynamics, and existential questions regarding God and the human condition.  His breathtaking body of work includes such masterpieces as Wild Strawberries (1957), The Seventh Seal (1957), The Virgin Spring (1960), Through A Glass Darkly (1961), Winter Light (1963), Persona (1966), the horror film Hour of the Wolf (1968), Cries and Whispers (1972), The Serpent's Egg (1977), and Fanny and Alexander (1982).
