Bianchi was a book illustrator and poster designer whose imagery focused primarily on beautiful women. His poster for Croisieres / Cosulich (see Swann Sale 2484 Lot 403) similarly depicts a fashionable woman on the bow of the ship, waving her arm as her scarf blows in the wind. This is the smaller, two-sheet format; the large format is four-sheets. Fiat p. 151, Bolaffi p. 19, Auto s'Affiche p. 234.
