  • Champagne Delbeck Reims is a wonderful image by noted poster artist, Leonetto Cappiello. We see the delight of a stylish woman opening a bottle of the Champagne with fervor, spraying it as the cork flies through the air.
    Flemish banker Felix-Desire Delbeck (1799-1878) founded Champagne Delbeck in 1832, on the the Montagne de Reims and on the Côte des Blancs. Delbeck married Baroness Balsamie Barrachin, niece and goddaughter of the Veuve-Cliquot-Ponsardin.  His marriage inspired an interest in Champagne wines. Delbeck supplied the court of King Louis-Phillippe. In 1884 his Champagne was the third most imported Champagne to the United States and Canada. In 2003 a financial scandal forced the famous Champagne house to file for bankruptcy and ultimately close its doors, after 171 years in business.
    This work is an example of an early style of artist Leonetto Cappiello.
    Leonetto Cappiello (1875-1942) was an Italian poster artist who worked in Paris. He is known for modernizing advertising design for the 20th Century. His compositions are uncomplicated and often feature a graceful figure with an oversized rendition of the product against a simple color background. The typography is often minimized to be as direct and short as possible. This innovation allowed for the advertising to be eye-catching and understood at a moments’ glance. It was ideal for the fast paced travel and attention of busy city life.
