Hella Arno (1904 - 2000)
Original color lithographic poster, printed by Bahy, Mulhouse, France circa 1935, on 2 sheets. Condition: Very Fine (A-) fresh colors, backed on linen.
Sheet size: 61.5 H. X 46.5 W.
In this large-scale 1930s vintage poster for Credo Rhum, Hella Arno depicts a smiling Creole with traditional head wrap and gold hoop earrings against a brilliant red background. Her earrings playfully dangle through the text to help form and emphasize the Credo name. The sharp interplay of light and shadow on the face as well as the linearity of the text accentuate the poster's Art Deco design.

This original color lithographic poster was printed circa 1935 by Bahy for the Ganter Distillery in the Alsatian city of Mulhouse. Ganter wants you to know that its Rhum is thoroughly Caribbean! Though rum can be made wherever sugar cane grows, Caribbean rum is the best known and the most loved.

This poster is a rare find and an excellent example of Hella Arno's graphic work.
