Contratto by Leonetto Cappiello (1922)

Refinement, elegance, and class— are just a few of the words that come to mind when you're describing the master, Leonetto Cappiello. Stark backgrounds, whimsical figures, and endless pockets of innovation all line Cappiello's repertoire.

Contratto, an Italian luxury beverage, was all the rage in the 1920s. Known for its smooth taste, and endless sparkle, this aperitif floated down the throat of any lucky connoisseur. 

In this Art Deco masterpiece we see a magnificent madam gliding beneath an over-sized glass of bubbling Contratto. The movement in her crimson top dances playfully as her floral skirt flows beneath. Now, if you look closely, is that blue in her hair? Classic, cheeky, Cappiello. Always a surprise awaiting a keen eye!

This vintage classic is guaranteed to steal the show on whichever wall is lucky enough to display its bountiful beauty. Signed in plate.
