Call us twisted - and you wouldnt be the first! - but any alcohol which is advertised as one of the choices of athletes makes us giggle. (Lillet aperitif is, according to Wikipedia: a brand of French aperitif wine. It is a blend of 85% wine and citrus liqueurs made from a variety of oranges. Lillet is matured in oak casks and available in red and white versions. While it has been produced since the late 1800s, the current formulation dates from 1987 (1990 for Red Lillet) and is relatively less bitter and sugary, and more fruit flavoured, than the historical one. We love the depth of color, the texture and oomph of this poster - powerful and very, very Art Deco. Art Deco was a popular international art design movement from 1925 until the 1940s, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional and modern. The movement was a mixture of many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism,Modernism, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative. Andre Galland produced a variety of posters for Lillet, each featuring smiling and virile athletes. Measuring 23.5 x 31 inches, this poster is in excellent condition - the colors of this poster pop and we feel it will look wonderful framed. All of our posters, prints and pochoirs are authentic, vintage items. Status: For Sale Reference#: rugbylillet Condition: A Year: 1930 Country: FRANCE Height: 31 in. (78.74 cm) Width: 23 in.
