This poster done for the Nitrolian paint company is one of the most iconic and endearing posters created by the great artist Leonetto Cappiello. In this image we see that the paint dries so rapidly that the woman in white can walk down the newly painted stairs without getting a spot on her. If you can notice the paint can, you will see that Cappiello mirrors the overall image in a small caption on the paint can. To further add some whimsy, Cappiello portrayed himself as the painter with the paint brush in his hand.

What Does 'Original' Mean?
We only deal in original vintage posters, never reproductions. This means that every poster is from the original print run, in the year listed in the description. Everything we sell comes with an individually signed certificate of authenticity, which we fully guarantee.
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.
