Jean D'Ylen created yet another eye-catching advertisement in stunning primary colors in this vintage poster from the early 1930s. The influence of Cappiello on this artist's work is apparent in the dark background and the flowing, floating stance of the charismatic figure.
Jean Paul Beguin, better known as Jean D'Ylen (1886-1938) created many advertisements in this popular style, using stunning primary colors. The influence of Leonetto Cappiello on this artist's work is apparent in the dark background and the flowing, floating stance of the charismatic figure. After a career started as a jewelry designer, D'Ylen became an advertising illustrator for the publishing company Vercasson Paris. He later rose to prominence after Cappiello left the company in 1916. D’Ylen was a master of combining humorous messages with well executed artwork and masterful colors to create some of the most sought after posters printed in the 1920's and 1930's.
