This original vintage poster was created in 1920 by renowned poster artist, Leonetto Cappiello. It is printed in a small format with English text using stone lithography for counter display in the United Kingdom. The fine details of the artwork promote the umbrellas made in France by the Revel Company. These umbrellas shield their owners from the worst of downpours.
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.
