Original 1963 French poster of the film Crooks in Clover directed by Georges Lautner with dialogues by Michel Audiard. This is the Style A drawn by Jean-Etienne Siry.
Jean-Etienne Siry was only 23 years old when he signed the poster of Crooks in Clover in 1963, probably his most famous creation. The style of the Parisian poster designer, who designed more than fifty posters for the cinema, is distinguished by humorous drawings against a background of photomontages.
Also model maker for The French Film, he designs the advertising models for Jean-Pierre Melville's films (Le Doulos), Agnès Varda (Cleo from 5 to 7) and Claude Chabrol (Landru). A pupil of Paul Colin, a friend of Brigitte Bardot's, his notoriety goes beyond the borders of France: The ruthless pursuit (Arthur Penn), What's up, pussycat (Clive Donner), The blowhard and The unsatisfied (Dino Risi)...
For ten years, he composed posters for various companies: Gaumont, Artistes Associés, Fox, Columbia and Cocinor. Becoming a filmmaker, Siry declared in 1980: "Having a camera for a brush and a whole team for colour tubes is as exciting as it is difficult".
