This Original Vintage Poster was first published in 1984. Each year, Willi's Wine Bar commissions a different artist to create a limited edition for their establishment. This piece was the first poster commissioned for the bar, created from an original Cassandre illustration made in the late 1920's.
A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968) is one of the most influential poster artists of the mid-twentieth century. His work mixes elements of art deco, cubism and surrealism. Cassandre established his own advertising agency, Alliance Graphique. Along with his innovative art style, Cassandre also developed several typefaces for use in his advertising. In 1936, his posters were exhibited by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His most notable work advertises the ocean liner Normandie.
