Movie Poster of the Week: "The Art of the Steal"

Adrian Curry

This sneaky poster for The Art of the Steal is another powerhouse design from Neil Kellerhouse, the genius behind three of last year's best one-sheets (for The Girlfriend Experience, The House of the Devil and The Informant), as well as several splendid Criterion boxes. Don Argott’s documentary about the nefarious dealings surrounding Pennsylvania’s Barnes Collection of Post-Impressionist and Modern art played the New York Film Festival last fall and opens in theaters next Friday. Kellerhouse has designed another teaser poster for the film which I'm less crazy about, but a couple of commenters on the IMP Awards website noticed the similarity of the Art of the Steal poster to the two designs below. The teaser for The Spirit especially is uncannily similar, but given the circumstances, theft of artwork seems perfectly fitting.

More of Kellerhouse’s work can be seen here.
