Coffurnus – Framed Vintage Poster 53″ x 73″ c.1930
Dimensions with frame: 53″ x 73″
Artist: Jean d’Ylen
Medium: Original Stone Lithograph Vintage Poster
After several years as a jewelry designer, D’Ylen became a full-time posterist in 1919 and signed an exclusive contract with Vercasson firm in 1922. He may have owed the job offer to the fact that he was a sincere admirer and disciple of Cappiello, who was the previous star at Vercasson, and thus the firm was assured of the uninterrupted flow of designs of unbridled exuberance. Like Cappiello, D’Ylen is a master of the art of flamboyant product personification, here bringing chef and stove to life to advertise Cofurnus Gas Stoves.
