Illustrated by Francisco Tamagno in 1903, the Demandez un Marra poster advertises the French liqueur brand Quina Marra. Quina, oftentimes referred to as Quinquina is a term for alcoholic drinks that contain quinine.

The poster features a well-dressed couple in the center of the image with the woman pouring the Quina Marra into the man’s glass. The text on the bottom poster reads "I drink my Marra to stay beautiful and I drink it for my Health as well". The elegant costuming of the couple implies the higher-class audience which the brand is catering to.

Francisco Tamagno (1851 -?) was of Portuguese origin, starting his artistic career as a portrait painter. Tamagno moved to Paris sometime in the 1880’s and became the house artist of the Printer Camis, where he started off creating theatrical playbills and moved up to creating posters for railroads, bicycles makers and distillers. Tamagno’s style is highly pictorial and his work can be identified through the use of lively, bright colors.

  • 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.
