Cat. #001644111: GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA

Beautiful 8x10-inch color portrait in her prime, boldly signed in blue felt-tip marker in her later years. In good condition. Known as "La Lollo," the late Gina Lollobrigida was the first sex symbol to emerge from post-World War Two Europe at a time when Italians were tossing over Neorealism in favor of unadulterated Hollywood glamour. The gorgeous artist's model, who was typically cast as smoldering seductresses, was memorable in Fanfan theTulip (1952) Beauties of the Night (1952), Beat the Devil (1953) with Humphrey Bogart, Carol Reed's Trapeze (1956), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1956), Solomon and Sheba (1959), Come September (1961), and Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell (1968) before Sophia Loren swept into town and stole her thunder. Lollobrigida spent her later years active in the Italian political arena.
