Achille Lucien Mauzan ( 1883 – 1952) was born on the French Riviera but moved to Italy in 1905. During his career as a poster printer and designer, Mauzan designed over 2,000 posters, using a style marked by humor and brilliant colors for advertisement and events and over 1,000 postcard images. He made several important posters for the Italian film industry in Turin, and then went to work at Ricordi music publishing from 1912 to 1917. Later, from 1919 to 1923 he works in the Magical press (Giovanni Magagnoli). In 1924 in Milan he establishes with Morzenti his own publishing house, the Mauzan-Morzenti Agency. In 1926 he travels to Argentina and sets up the “Affiches Mauzan” (Mauzan Posters) publishing house where many of his greatest works were created and where he worked until 1932.
This poster uses an original design by Mauzan that was never printed during his lifetime. In the mid 1990’s the design was printed under license from his estate. The image typifies the distinctive humorous style that so endeared Mauzan to his loyal followers.
