About the Artist
Award-winning artist and designer Bob Peak (1927–1992), one of the most imaginative and prolific illustrators of the 20th century, has been hailed as the “father of the modern Hollywood movie poster.” Peak revolutionized advertising in the film industry, taking the then basic approach of film still or headshot collages and transforming it into flamboyant artistic illustrations. United Artists first hired Peak in 1961 to help promote West Side Story. His innovative solution—painting characters and scenes into a single montage—became the first of over 100 such posters, among them My Fair Lady, Camelot, Rollerball, Star Trek, Superman, and Apocalypse Now.
