LUCIAN BERNHARD (1883-1950) MANOLI. Watercolor design for an ashtray. Post 1919.
8x11 1/4 inches.
Condition A: watercolor on paper. Framed.
Manoli was far and away Bernhard's largest client. He created designs for their whole range of cigarettes, from packaging to posters, including promotional objects like ashtrays. This unsigned watercolor is one of the many studies he did during his long years of work for the company. Bernhard p. 109 (var).
