This December, Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums turns 10 years old. (We know, we know: that makes us feel desperately ancient, too.) There’s a lot in the works to celebrate the tremendously influential film’s 10th anniversary, including a special screening at the New York Film Festival—we may even have something up our own sleeve, too. But in the meantime, we’re whetting our appetite with this new painting by artist Rich Pellegrino, which depicts the film’s nine major characters in watercolor in a slightly Brady Bunch-y grid.
Pellegrino is making the piece available in a limited run of 200 signed, numbered 18×20″ posters, printed as an archival giclée on Italian cold-press watercolor paper. They go on sale at 5 p.m. EST at Spoke Art for an entirely reasonable $50 each and would be an ideal gift for your tracksuit-wearing brother, chain-smoking sister, or cancer-faking father.
