Monna Delza. ca. 1907.
Despite the omission of a date, the flat red background and lack of extraneous detail suggests this is from the earliest part of Cappiello's career—and the same could be said for Monna Delza, whose vaudeville and theatre career ran from 1900-1920. It was most likely a stock poster to be filled in with theatre details at a later date. The Grecian dress reveals her patrician bearing; she later married into Italian nobility.
