Contratto (Leonetto Cappiello) – Cross Stitch Chart
The poster design, Contratto, shows a cheerful young woman enjoying a large glass of bubbly. This fine-art cross stitch design shows white bubbles pouring over the side of the large orange glass she holds over her head. It was created in 1921 by Italian-born artist Leonetto Cappiello and is a very popular poster today. A white mat and black frame would make this a great addition to any wall. Cappiello is often called the father of modern advertising because of his unique poster designs. He had no formal training in art, and used bold figures that popped out of black backgrounds – a startling contrast to poster’s early style.
