    Winsor McCay - Le Dernier Cri des Dessins Animés Oversized Poster (c. 1911). In 1911, The Vitagraph Company of America produced a live-action film titled Winsor McCay and His Moving Comics that showed the creation of (and ended with) an animated cartoon of Little Nemo. With the French text on this poster (which reads "The Last Cry of Cartoons"), it may have been intended for a French release of the film. An incredible find, this stone lithograph-printed poster has an image area that measures an astounding 35.5" x 51". The art is signed "R. Hem" who was a popular French poster artist in the early 1900s. The poster is linen-backed and Plexiglas front framed in an elaborate frame measuring 51.5" x 67". It is tanned, but otherwise in Excellent condition. What an amazing piece of comic strip, animation, and film history!
