Cusenier. ca. 1900.
Cappiello's vivacity—as well as his fondness for twinned figures and oversized props—is visible here in d'Ylen's poster for Cusenier liqueurs, but it boasts d'Ylen's own undeniable charm. Sparrow describes this image, one in a series, with high praise: "girls in white flowing draperies... are carried up in the air by their thoughts of liqueurs and wines. There are two of them in each of several posters, and they carry laughingly gay bottles and ripe fruit as an explanation of their exalted airiness." His advice: "Every one of [England's] distillers and brewers should study what [d'Ylen] has done for the Vercasson management" (Sparrow, p. 151-152). This is the smaller format.
