From Helenyi Tibor's estate. 1984. 42,5 x 30 cm. Oil on canvas. Painted poster artwork for the Hungarian poster of the famous Star Wars episode, Return of the Jedi.The poster is one of the emblematic science-fiction designs by the artist who first made a painted artwork later to be reproduced. The painted version doesn't contain text, only image. His work caught the atmosphere of the movie, but he created a new, original vision. The amazing painterly approach of expression together with the grotesque visual world make the piece special.
The story line of this enigmatic movie goes like this: Darth Vader and the Empire are building a new, indestructible Death Star. Meanwhile, Han Solo has been imprisoned, and Luke Skywalker has sent R2-D2 and C-3PO to try and free him. Princess Leia - disguised as a bounty hunter - and Chewbacca go along as well. The final battle takes place on the moon of Endor, with its natural inhabitants, the Ewoks, lending a hand to the Rebels. (source: imdb.com)
