Saturday’s ad is for Birra Napoli, from 1922. From the late 1800s until the 1960s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. This poster is for the S.A. Birrerie Meridionali, located in Naples, Italy, which was founded in 1904. This poster was created by French artist Achille Mauzan. He was “born on the French Riviera, but moved to Italy in 1905, [and was] known as a decorative illustrator designing during the Art Deco movement, though he also painted and sculpted.” From 1919 to 1923, Mauzan worked for the Maga agency started by Giovanni Magagnoli, during the time this poster was made.
