More About this Item

Description: Artist: ANONYMOUS Size: 54 3/4 x 77 1/4 in./139 x 196.2 cm Ricordi, Milan One of the main selling points of the Mele department store was that the average woman could obtain high-fashion style for a relatively low dollar figure. Coined "bourgeois realism,” posters like this stunning design showcase attainable glamour and elegance without making it seem pedestrian or cheap. Here in particular, the artist gives us the most finely attired woman exiting her car to shop at Mele. This is an incredibly rare, two-sheet poster. Seen here for the first time!
