This Original Vintage Poster was created in the 1920's by artist Jean D'Ylen . The image serves as the logo of the Filver Company of France which manufactured suspenders and garter belts. Monsieur Filver, the jester in the poster, can be seen enjoying his products. It is a stone lithograph printed in France and measures a striking 44in x 90in. This image is especially striking on a staircase and in rooms with high ceilings.
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.
