About The Poster: This poster for Relsky Vodka was designed by Leonetto Cappiello in 1911. The Russian's bright red beard stands out from the dark black background - typical of the artist's style, and so innovative for its time! This poster would look amazing in any man cave, office, kitchen, restaurant... anywhere that needs a pop of colour, sophistication, and whimsy!

About the Artist: Leonetto Cappiello is considered to be one of the greatest posterists of his age. His approach was "always image association - the idea that you don't really remember the image of the product itself, but the image of something is associated with the product ... Cappiello was the first who thoroughly understood this, and he applied it with considerable diligence in about a thousand posters." (Rennert)
