Leonetto Cappiello was truly a master of his craft, and this rare example shows his talent off in full. He employs his extensive art training in the elegant twisting of the woman's body, allowing her to both float through the air with ease and joy while still being strong enough to confidently hoist the bounty of Gautier grapes above her shoulders. It is all done in an unusual and desirable blue and and yellow color palette; one that the artist did not frequently use. It is a joyous image, perfect for the entertaining areas of the home.

Maison Gautier Cognac traces its history back to 1644 when Charles Gautier, the son of an oak merchant (read: barrels) married Jacquette Brochet, the daughter of a vineyard owner. The company went "on the books" in 1755 with a royal warrant from King Louis XV and count this year as their true founding. The cognac is made to this day in its ancient water mill in the small French village of Aigre.

Leonetto Cappiello (1875-1942) was an Italian poster artist who worked in Paris. He is known for modernizing advertising design for the 20th Century. His compositions are uncomplicated and often feature a graceful figure with an oversized rendition of the product against a simple color background. The typography is often minimized to be as direct and short as possible. This innovation allowed for the advertising to be eye-catching and understood at a moments’ glance. It was ideal for the fast paced travel and attention of busy city life.

  • 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.
