For everyone who does not know yet: The settings in the original Star Wars movies were created with amazing matte paintings. You can see some of them here.

Aside from the stunning technical aspects these paintings are magnificent pieces of art on its own. As you can see in the link these paintings are quite large. I am craving for some of them as wallpaper for my desktop or even wall, but all images I can find on the web are of low quality.

Were high quality photocopies or something similar ever fashioned from these paintings that can be acquired in some reasonable way?

  • FWIW if this is considered a shopping question, it would probably be on topic per the ruling on meta. – TheLethalCarrot Oct 4 at 9:58
  • Alright, that is nice to hear! I really have not been able to find anything, free or in a shop. – And Oct 4 at 10:02
  • Maybe not the mattes themselves, but a fair few of Ralph Macquarie's concept art has been sold as prints - I found a pack of about a dozen or so in a second-hand store a few years back – HorusKol Oct 4 at 13:49
