    Alberto Vargas (1896-1983) Original Movie "Visual" (1938). This offering is for one of the rare "visuals" Alberto Vargas created for the Warner Brothers 1938 film Juarez. As noted by Reid Austin in the book Vargas (Austin/Vargas), "His best work was done for Warner's; his elevations or visuals for Juarez are gems of light, shadow, and composition." Rendered in mixed media on paper, it is matted (7 x 9) with an image area of 3 x 4. The work is titled (in Vargas' hand) "Dining Room, Mexico City" and is signed lower right. This image was reproduced in the book Varga The Esquire Years, A Catalogue Rasionne (Alfred Van Der Marck).
