Auguste Jean-Bapt. Roubille on Sale Now at Auction
Estimate: $7,000 - $9,000
Description: Artist: AUGUSTE ROUBILLE (1872-1955) Size: 45 1/4 x 63 1/2 in./115 x 161.3 cm Imp. Lemercier, Paris Spratts was a major British pet food producer with branches in several countries (their U.S. factory was located in Newark, NJ). Here, the French branch advertises with a poster stressing dog food. Roubille uses a restrained yet warm style to show a happy mistress dispensing Spratts treats to her clamoring canines (Gold, p. 14). Surely one of the finest animal-centered images in the poster medium.
