Description: Artist: LEONETTO CAPPIELLO (1875-1942) Size: 76-3/4 x 107-3/4 in / 193.9 x 273.7 cm Imp. Devambez, Paris This is our very first acquisition of Cappiello's Cioccolato Venchi, and its immense size – nearly 9 feet high – is previously unknown to the poster art world. One of the most purely delightful promotional images in history, Cappiello's composition - leaping, spilling, tumbling, dancing - is the epitome of candy's effect upon taste buds and children's excitement levels. Cappiello created two posters for S. Venchi & Co. Chocolatiers, which was founded in 1878 and remains based in Turin, Italy, with American storefronts in Eataly bazaars in New York, Chicago, and Boston. This is an extremely rare two-sheet billboard. (chocolate)
