D’Ylen succeeded the legendary Cappiello at the comissioning and printing company Vercassson in 1919. His distinctive style is unmistakable and highly evocative of the period. His brightly coloured, almost caricature characters are often seen playing, juggling, or wrestling with an enlarged or stylised version of product, usually set against a dark and uniform background. Playful and exuberant, the posters found a wide and enduring appeal, and remain popular and sought after by collectors to this day.

D’Ylen designed posters for clients including Waterman, Shell Oil, and Sandeman. His works rarely come onto the market and attain high prices when they do. Ninety of his posters are held by the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.

This is a large poster backed on linen. It is in excellent condition
