Prestito Della Liberazione

Dimensions: 20" (w) x 28" (h)

(Literal translation: Loan of the Liberation)

The renowned Italian poster artist Achille Luciano Mauzan (1881-1952) created this Art Deco piece. The artist was skilled in a variety of art forms such as engraving, sculpture, graphic design and painting. He created over 2,000 posters of products, events and wars during the Golden Era of Posters.

Mauzan designed many posters for the Italian war bonds during WWI in which Italy was on the Allied side. In this one, a solemn-faced figure representing Italy—winged and laurel-wreathed—holds out a sword to arms reaching towards it in the ancient Roman oath-swearing ritual. On the banner in front is a quote from Italy’s wartime leader Orsini referring to the return of ‘what was ours—conquered Italian territory…and Italian pride.’
