Collection: Francisco Tamagno (Italian 1851-1933)

Tamagno was an Italian painter and poster artist, active in France between 1880 and 1914. After training in Rome in watercolor and lithography around 1870-1873, a period during which he produced a few posters (printed in Rome and Lyon), Francisco Tamagno entered the School of Fine Arts in Paris. Working mainly with the Parisian printing works of Victor Camis located 58 rue Saint-Sabin, he received a large number of orders and executed between 1890 and 1900, more than a hundred posters of remarkable graphic quality. In 1905, he moved to the Gallice printing press. In 1898, he invented the "Pierrot" for the Cointreau brand, inspired by a photograph by Nadar of the mime Najac: his advertising character would be used for 50 years. After 1918, Tamagno produced a few more posters for stores ( Confections pour dames, Roubaix) or the cinema ( Judex , Quatre-vingt treize ), printed by Delattre (Paris).
