About The Poster: This lovely framed poster is of a pilot girl and was for Quinquina Ferrugineux. Quinquina Ferrugineux is an aperitif wine containing iron (ferrugineaux means ‘containing iron’). In France, Quinquina is a collective name for bitters (aperitif) having quinine as one of their main ingredients. Quinquina is also known as Peruvian Bark. It originates from South America and was introduced to Europe in the 17th century by Spanish missionaries.
This particular piece features a pilot girl and was done by Alberto Bianchi. At the end of WWI, Bianchi devoted a lot of his time to portrait painting, a genre he was particularly skilled at. From the 1920s on, he devoted himself to advertising. This poster has been matted and beautifully framed.
