The Legend of Ben Hall

By Janni Fewster

About this Curation

bluethumb are delighted to host this special exhibition to celebrate the DVD release of Australian western The Legend of Ben Hall. Artist Ross Morgan was asked by writer-director-producer Matthew Holmes to create artworks for the film.

In the great tradition of handmade film posters, the star of The Art of Ben Hall is the original hand-drawn artwork that was used for the main poster, the composition reminiscent of epic adventure films like Indiana Jones and Star Wars.

Also showcased are a series of character portraits that feature in the film’s end credits and preliminary sketches for all the final artworks.
