GIUSEPPE RICCOBALDI DEL BAVA (1887-1976)
RIVA - TORBOLE / LAGO DI GARDA. 1936.
39 1/2x27 1/2 inches, 100 1/4x69 3/4 cm. Barabino & Graeve, Genova. Condition B+ / A-: expertly-repaired tears at edges, some slightly into image; minor overpainting, creases and small replaced losses in margins.
Riccobaldi studied drawing, painting and set design. He supported himself selling illustrations to books and magazines, and ultimately began designing movie posters. From 1927 on, he mostly designed travel posters. "His style, influenced by the Futurists, and oriented towards late Cubist graphics, can reach great compositional charm" (Bolaffi p. 186). Travel Italia p. 47.
