I'm really fond of Le Monnier's work. He always manages to coax a wink or a smile with posters that poke fun good-naturedly. Here his portrayal of a young gentleman, exultant before a bottle of his favourite brandy  - Armagnac Chateau Larressingle - manages to put the product name and packaging front and center in an effective and memorable way. Armagnac is a highly aromatic brandy from the Gascony region of far south-western France and the country's first brandy, said to date back more than 700 years to the early 15th Century.

Charming advertisements such as this are prized by collectors and home-owners alike. Combined with the fantastic artwork of Le Monnier who produced some excellent posters in his time makes for a match made in heaven! Great for a kitchen, man cave, restaurant, or bar... The poster is professionally linen-lined and in excellent A/A- condition.
