Mele Mode Novita, 1909 ca.
A fashionable couple enters a ballroom in one of the most stunningly elegant posters created by Metlicovitz for the Mele department store of Naples. The artist created about a dozen posters for the company over roughly a five-year period, and this one reflects his mastery in the art of the fashion poster. The richness of subtle color harmonies, its dynamic composition and its sheer size make this poster a dramatic centerpiece for any wall or room.
This is one of the rarest of Mele posters, and even more importantly, this impression is free of light stains on the folds, with color as fresh as the day it was printed. Bellissima!
