This very rare Balsam Aperitif poster was created in 1923 by the well-respected artist Jean D'Ylen. It promotes an aperitif made with quinquina by the Belgian distiller F.X. de Beukelaer of Anvers. The F.X. de Beukelaer Company was founded in 1863 by Francois Xavier de Beukelaer. The company is still one of Belgium's premium producers of liqueurs now best known for its Elixir D'Anvers, which is sold throughout the world. The Balsam Aperitif was a digestive liqueur made with quinquina, which combats malaria and aids digestion.

The whimsical image of the brightly clad skier is a wonderful example of the artistry and appeal of Jean D'Ylen's work. Jean D'Ylen (1886 - 1938) was trained in the art of designing jewelry and was recruited by the Vercasson Printing Company to be the understudy to Leonetto Cappiello, their top designer of posters. When Cappiello left Vercasson, D'Ylen assumed the role of top designer. He 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.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
