Hi Again, it's Ruby Tuesday!
I'm posting at 2:30 PM EST today and from this day forward so that participants from all over the world can post at a relatively decent hour.
My RED photos this week are shots of the framed posters in a French restaurant called La Petite Framboise (The little raspberry). I posted about this restaurant back in April of 2009. You can find the post here.
We had brunch and enjoyed it very much.
The top poster advertises Lillet, a French aperitif wine from Bordeaux. A vintage advertising poster by Robys (Robert Wolff).
The middle one is a vintage advertising poster by Leonetto Cappiello for un Fornier Liquor. by Leonetto Cappiello Fournier-Demars makes Un Fournier, a curacao based on oranges, and Cappiello makes sure that we don't forget it by showing us a beautiful -- and androgenous -- enchantress leaping with joy amidst the fruit.
The bottom one is also by, the father of the modern poster, Italian artist Leonetto Cappiello (1875 – 1942) who made advertising posters modern and collectible. Cappiello, who was self-taught, began as a caricaturist and escalated to the early 20th century’s most acclaimed European artist. Cleverly linking products with vivid, memorable images, he produced 1,000 imaginative posters for beverages, ballet, literature, plays, travel and music halls in four decades. Leading the Art Deco movement, Cappiello’s techniques are still vital to modern advertising. "Pates Baroni" means Baroni pasta.
