Prima Mostra Regionale di Granicoltura Concorso Poster
27 x 40 in (69 x 100 cm)
Title: First Regional Exhibition of Corsican Grain Farming
Vintage Italian poster for an agricultural festival. The poster, despite its unassuming farming focus, is veiled in drama: two Roman-style statues struggle for dominance at the forefront, the woman seemingly trying to escape from the man, while husks of wheat shoot out behind them, framing the scene.
