Poster artist Leonetto Cappiello 1875-1942

"...he is best known for his work creating posters during the heyday of the poster in the early 20th century. His style differed dramatically from those who had preceded him, with their brightly colored designs leaping out of the black backgrounds he preferred. He went on to create iconic posters for well-known brands, and created over 530 advertising posters that fetch (increasingly) high prices today."
