GINO BOCCASILE (1901-1952)

lithographic poster in colours, 1949, cond. A, printed by Zanini & Cellerino, Alessandria
and; the censored 1950 version and a used, uncensored version, for the Hotel Excelsior, of the same size. all 3 are framed. (3)
40 x 27ins. (100 x 70cm.)


Boccasile created this nude version for Paglieri who refused to use it.

Boccasile refused to alter it for 2 years but as Paglieri did not pay for the commission, he eventually altered it to the known censored version.

In the meantime The Hotel Excelsior, used the poster to promote a Grand dancing evening and covered her nudity with the announcement. This is the only know copy in existence.
