"Buvez du Vin et Vivez Joyeux" 1933 by Leonetto Cappiello [1875-1942]
I just changed the blog introduction picture, as I do occasionally, from the upper right part of a painting from René Magritte "The Portrait" Brussels 1935 that I love, for this great French ad that you might have recognized; if not, it is a lithography by Leonetto Cappiello [1875-1942], edited by the french minister of Agriculture in 1933, in a campaign to promote the benefit of drinking wine. The slogan translates by: "Drink some wine and Live Happy!" An advice that I have been following for more than 20 years and counting. I can only advise you to do the same, with moderation of course.
