Cachou Lajaunie, 1920

Cappiello, Leonetto poster: Cachou Lajaunie

This advertisement for breath mints is one of Cappiello's most playful images. A fashionable young woman enjoys a smoke and prepares to chase it with a mint from the famous yellow tin (the product has survived for a century). But the image is truly made memorable by the woman's fantastic dress of yellow, red and green petals, which is set off against a deep forest-green background. It is a wonderful example of Cappiello's unparalleled ability to capture our attention with an unforgettable image.
