The Anniversary


Chantrell's original prototype artwork (17"x 23" overall) for the 1968 Hammer film, "The Anniversary". This is another case where Chantrell's prototype design required little further development, his grasp of the brief & creative interpretation being immediately in-sync with what Hammer wanted.


Close comparison between this "rough" & the resultant printed Quad (see below), shows an extraordinary similarity. Indeed, the finished Quad almost looks like it was printed from this artwork (cast/credits information would have been carried on an acetate overlay). It is likely that Chantrell did, however, execute "finished" artwork for the Quad but the basic, quick, free-flowing tone of the prototype was simply reprised in finished form. The Chantrell archive does not possess finished artwork for "The Anniversary" & it is likely that this piece was lost/destroyed. The piece here therefore represents the closest to the finished artwork that remains in existence.

The artwork consists of a painted design on paper applied to card. The snapshot image to the right has been superimposed &
on the finished Quad appears as a photograph.
