L'Ambrosiano Edizione del Pomeriggio, 1934
A gigantic newsboy races down a Milan street at dusk announcing the latest headlines in this highly expressionistic poster promoting the afternoon edition of the Ambrosiano. 1934 was a dramatic year in Italy - the rigged referendum of Mussolini's rule, the dictator's first meeting with Hitler and the first world championship for the Italian national soccer team. What better time to remind readers that they can have tomorrow's headlines tonight? Sironi was a leading modernist artist in Italy from 1908 to WWII, and made a handful of powerful posters. This one is unique in his oeuvre and a tour de force. Extremely rare.
