Cachou Lajaunie is French advertisement from 1905 by the artist, Francisco Tamangno.
Cachou Lajaunie is a licorice candy whose strong flavor was designed to disguise the smoker's breath. Tamangno's composition places the Victorian woman in the center. She holds the small tin of Cachou Lajaunie as she is admired by several men representing each of the marketed professions. Below the poster reads, "Recommended for smokers, chauffeurs, cyclists etc…" The candy is still in production today in France.
Francisco Tamagno (1851 -?) was of Portuguese origin, starting his artistic career as a portrait painter. Tamagno moved to Paris sometime in the 1880’s and became the house artist of the Printer Camis, where he started off creating theatrical playbills and moved up to creating posters for railroads, bicycles makers and distillers. Tamagno’s style is highly pictorial and his work can be identified through the use of lively, bright colors.
