Giclee? (jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating high quality fine art reproductions. The attainable excellence that Giclee? printmaking affords makes the reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original artwork. The result is wide acceptance of Giclee? by galleries, museums, and private collectors.
Leonetto Cappiello (b. 1875 in Livorno, Italy; d. 1942 in Cannes, France) was an Italian poster art designer who lived in Paris. He is now often called the father of modern advertising.
Cappiello had no formal training in art. The first exhibition of his work was in 1892, when a painting was displayed at the municipal museum in Florence. Cappiello started his career as a caricaturist illustrating in journals like Le Rire, Le Cri de Paris, Le Sourire, L'Assiette au Beurre, La Baionnette, Femina, and others. His first album of caricatures, Lanterna Magica, was made in 1896. In 1898, he moved to Paris, and his caricatures were published in Le Rire for the first time.
Between 1901 and 1914, he created several hundred posters in a style that revolutionized the art of poster design. Cappiello redesigned the fin-de-siEcle pictures into images more relevant to the faster pace of the 20th century. During this period, Capiello continued as a caricaturist.
