Original lithographic poster printed in colors, printed by Devambez, Paris, France 1929. Condition: Very Fine (A-) two, barely visibke tears, fresh colors, backed on linen.
Sheet size: 38 H. X 25 W.
In 1929, Leonetto Cappiello was commissioned by a French railway to create a poster advertising the year round resorts in the Pyrenees. The result was a unique, Cappiello-esque solution - a Roaring Twenties age damsel boldly clad in striped sweater and flowing scarf blowing in the fresh mountain breeze, enjoying a round of golf. As always, he creates a visual impact: bold, striking color combinations that emphasize the central illustration. Of the more than 1000 posters that Cappiello designed, this is his only poster depicting golf.
