About The Poster: First, a definition of terms: a maquette is the original design from which a poster is made. It is a one-of-a-kind piece by definition - it is the original artwork for a poster. So, while a poster is wonderful (and I sell many) a maquette, to me, is even better because it is the idea and design behind the poster.This Mondaini drawing was purchased in Italy from a collector who was fortunate enough to buy the archives of Mauzan and his design partner Morzenti.

Mondaini was another member of the Mauzan design clan, and the sense of humor of the master is clearly evident in this maquette for Bel Paese cheese - a brand still available in Italy and around the world. To the best of my knowledge and research, this poster was never produced, making this drawing/maquette a rare, and unusual piece.Bearing the Mauzan Morzenti stamp on the reverse this maquette measures 7 x 9.5 inches on a cardboard which is roughly 9 x 12 inches. It has been archived since it was produced and shows no aging, no foxing, not tearing and no wear. It is perfect!
