In this later released poster promoting the French Champagne, L’Instant Taittinger, we look directly through a human size Champagne flute to see the image of a tall, thin blonde woman wearing a form fitting black, strapless evening gown. While some see the woman as Grace Kelly, it is actually French actress Catherine Deneuve.
The famous Taittinger Champagne house was founded by Pierre Charles Taittinger in 1932 and is still in operation today, headed by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger. Taittinger holds their Champagne as the savoir-faire of the past and a commitment for the future. The Champagne house is family run and the company prides itself on its high standards and control of quality.
We have not been able to authenticate whether Taittinger actually commissioned the printing of this poster. We suggest that it be considered as a decorative poster .
This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.
