Anselmo Ballester (1897 - September 22, 1974)
Anselmo Ballester is widely regarded as one of the best poster artists of all time. During Ballester’s long career he created posters for Italian film studios as well as many of the major U.S. studios. Ballester formed a company called BCM with two other prominent Italian poster artists, Alfredo Capitani and Luigi Martinati and, over the years, these three men created some of the best poster art ever produced. Ballester had a successful career as a poster artist and continued to produce movie posters through the 1960s.
