This artwork is from Les Maitres de L’Affiche series; miniature versions of outstanding stone lithograph artworks of the most important advertising posters by the finest artists.
“In 1846 Paris wine agent Joseph Dubonnet decided to enter the business with a product of his own. With medicinal bitters just coming into vogue, he chose to base his drink on quinine, and to disguise its bitter taste, he mixed it with sweet wine from Greece. The result quickly gained wide acceptance; by the end of the century the company was producing three million bottles a year and exporting to many foreign countries” (Gold p.34)
“A charming lass displaying a bottle of the aperitif, as well as her glass, which we can only assume she intends to consume once her moment in the spotlight has passed” (Rennert XXVII, 347)
