Though created in 1935, this exquisite work was not published until the 1980s, when it featured (without the inscription to Michel) in a famous poster for Willi's Wine Bar in Paris. Cassandre (1901-68), whose real name was Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron, is celebrated for his designs for a variety of French brands, including railway and shipping companies and Dubonnet.
