L'Aperitif Amer Picon, 1930 ca.
The Art Deco style is an enormously popular area of collecting, as are wine and spirit posters. The two are combined in the show's featured piece, a design by Sepo for the French aperitif Picon. Sepo was born in Bologna, Italy, and came to Paris after becoming a leading posterist in his home country.
This circa 1930 gem is a recent discovery that features a surprisingly contemporary color palette, angular lines, and a playful spirit.
