Wow, now this is a rare classic we don't come across often. Famed artist Leonetto Cappiello truly has an unmistakable finesse when it comes to bringing conceptual designs to life. With a prolific career spanning 75 years under his belt, its no wonder this 1919 poster advertising nursing supplies is an astounding work of art. 

"La Croix-Soleil" was a medical supply company based in Toulouse, France that dominated the first half of the 20th century. Found in just about every French hospital in its heyday, these medical supplies boasted guaranteed hygienics and sterilization-- both highly sought after for the time period. 

A nurse dressed ethereally in white dominates the landscape as she measures out her gauze. A bounty of medical aids lie at her feet as she prepares to help her next patient. Also, notably, the offset checkered background to her exterior is unfounded for a Cappiello. Renowned for his solid, bold backgrounds, this unique tiling breathes new life into this rare 1919 timepiece.
