Viano created this bold Art Deco poster to advertise the aperitif Kina-Cure around 1930. The three men in different outfits suggests that Kina-Cure can be enjoyed anytime; whether at the beach, after work, or at a fancy event. The dynamic color palette of green, red, and white was popular in the Art Deco era of this poster.
Kina-Cure was an aperitif with quinine and tonic water, meant to be enjoyed before dinner to stimulate the appetite. Quinine based drinks became popular as a result of France's military skirmishes in North Africa at the turn of the century. Quinine combats malaria but tastes very bitter, so bevergaes were made that combined its bitterness with other flavors. The popularity of these bitter-laced cocktails outlasted any medical reason, and bitters such as Dubonnet are still popular today.

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.
