Printed in Italy, circa 1900
Original Stone Lithograph
Italian Art Nouveau poster advertising a sulfur and sulfur applicator. There are many early posters advertising fertilizers, sulfurs and other products for vineyard care. Rather than being aimed at large scale agriculture producers, they were intended for the home viticulturist. This piece features a particularly beautiful hand made typestyle and unusual colors. The Italian Art Nouveau style is often called ‘heroic’ and shows the influenceof classical Italian figurative style. This framed poster is currently on display in Healdsburg’s Barn Diva gallery.
