Paris : Union des Françaises Contre l’Alcool, circa 1916. Original lithograph poster. Unmounted. Very good. Normal fold marks. Few marginal tears. 119.5 x 79.8 cm.
The image occupies the whole, with the title integrated and positioned in the upper quarter, in black and in brown. The text is integrated and positioned in the lower quarter, also in black and in brown. All set against a white background and held within a narrow black border.
image: a disheveled French man sits at a small round table. His wife has one hand over her eyes as she reaches out to try to take a bottle of alcohol from him. The man holds the bottle protectively and refuses to hand it to her. Their son and daughter hide behind the wife's skirt.
text: Ah! Quand supprimera-t-on l'Alcool?
