Ruby Tuesday



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.



Okay m'dear friends. Sign Linky, comment, and visit.

Mine's up - a red and a rant from me this week.

I like these posters - that clown with the dancing spaghetti put a much-needed smile on my face.

Loree said...

I love the vibrant reds of the vintage signs and guess what? I've posted a vintage sign myself this week. What a coincidence.

ilanadavita said...

Thanks a lot Mary for posting early!

marian said...

they're fabulously RED..i LOVE all things ART DECO!

Leora said...

If we drink the wine, will we have as much fun as they are having? ;-)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I like these posters and LOVE the way you presented them. ;-)

Carletta said...

Such gorgeous and fun posters Mary!
Lovely to admire while waiting for your favorite dishes to arrive.
I like the angles of the shots too!

Mine's dessert! :)

Jim said...

Mary, I like your posters. These are especially nice. We have a few saved from here and there over time. These do good on your blog for RT.

You sneaked up on me today with the time change! That is fine with me. Some days I'm ready, some days I'm really late. I always see what you have when I finish.
..
Today I was ready earlier except Susie, my musical daughter, was asking me a few blog questions.
I have her linked on my right side bar. She has written the music for every song listed. Most are accompiments and the words aren't there.
She has a playlist listeners can start and then listen. It keeps on playing after it's started until it is stopped.

The French (I think) have a saying about eating with our eyes. The classic posters intrigue me so much, I can't wait to see the menu!

In the second poster, I like the way the artist has made the skirt look like the petals of a hibiscus flower - very drapey and crinkly.

Diane AZ said...

All of the posters are fun, but I really got a kick out of the spaghetti one!

Eaton Bennett said...

Hi Mary, I've had a bit of a break and hopefully I will be back on a regular basis.

Great posters, sounds like a lovely place to eat and it certainly has interesting art on the walls.

Felisol said...

Hello, teach Mary,
Your art deco posters are so well done and also rare. The vivid expressions of the ballerina and the clown are spreading good mood without even consuming one single drop of wine.
I'd like to join the company!
From Felisol 03.30 a.m.
