A Swiss Poster of the Year Award winner in 1948, this stunning tromp-l'oeil poster shows a bar of soap and its perfect reflection in a high-gloss tile. In a remarkable, if not immediately apparent, flourish of skill and detail, Leupin adds a perfectly rendered, tiny reflection of a window in a water droplet in the foreground.

This is surely one of the most beautiful of Leupin's Object Posters, a style he helped to revitalize in the late Thirties and early Forties. Such a tour de force took 10 to 12 weeks to make, requiring Leupin to create exacting life-size preparatory drawings for each lithographic color - exhausting labor! The unsurpassed beauty of the Object Poster would represent the final flowering of the golden age of the lithographic poster.
