Bill Gold played a major role in the increasing popularity of the genre of film poster artwork during a large part of the Twentieth Century. As a recent graduate of Pratt Institute, his highly narrative design style began to take hold in the early 1940s while working for Warner Brother's poster department on films such as Yankee Doodle Dandy andCasablanca. He went on to create some of the most recognizable film posters of the 1950s(A Streetcar Named Desire, Dial M For Murder, and East of Eden to name a few) before starting his own company and broadening his reach in the 1960s (My Fair Lady, Cool Hand Luke, and Bullitt among others). In the 1970s and 1980s he was responsible for an enormous number of film poster designs (too many to list here!) and although slowing down a bit as the digital age approached, he continued into the 1990s and beyond. Bill was a member of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Society of Illustrators and The Art Directors Club. In 1994 he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Hollywood Reporter and in 2013 he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from Pratt Institute. He has also been named one of Pratt Institute's Most Memorable 125 Icons. San Francisco Art Exchange LLC was recently selected by Gold to exclusively represent a number of original artworks that were used in his film poster designs. These original drawings and paintings have been a treasured part of his personal collection fo
