    Maurin Quina (1906). Very Fine- on Linen. French Advertising Grande (45.5" X 62") Leonetto Capiello Artwork.
    Among the most famous advertising images of the Belle Epoch, this impish illustration by Leonetto Capiello promotes the now famous cherry flavored aperitif. Ironically enough, the French government banned the drink the same year as the printing of the advertisement. However, the beverage has seen a revival in both France and in the United States in recent years, with the new bottles still sporting Capiello's iconic devil. Done in stone litho printing, this poster has had partial touchup applied to the folds, creases, minor tears, and a small gouge in left background. Still visible is a reattached chip in the lower right corner and a few surface scuffs.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
