Manuel Orazi was an Art Nouveau illustrator and poster artist most recognized for his two-dimensional poster prints. Orazi was inspired by the Vienna Secession along with the Symbolism art movement. Using these sources, he created his own distinctive Art Nouveau style consisting of flowing and organic elements. An example of Orazi’s style can be seen in the poster L’Hippodrome, which is available in the upcoming Vintage Posters event, presented by Potter & Potter Auctions. The piece depicts an equestrienne in a dress and headpiece riding a black stallion whilst charging ahead. The rider is adorned in lavish jewelry.
Leonetto Cappiello, commonly known as the Father of Modern Advertising, was an Italian and French poster art designer and painter. He is mainly celebrated for revolutionizing the poster illustration of his time. His method was using exaggerated, bright subjects in unusual hues that contrasted with a very dark background to make his creations “pop out.” Such is the case for the 1927 poster Cognac Monnet, which depicts a woman in red and purple with golden rays against a dark background. It will come to auction this August. View the entire catalog and register to bid online by visiting Potter & Potter Auctions.
