About this poster

In the typical style of Donald Brun, this vintage poster advertises Swiss butter. Using the sophisticated airbrush technique, Brun painted this design with naturalistic perfection in the trompe-l’oeil style. By displaying the butter on the knife like a pseudo-photographic advertising object with an almost surreal effect, Brun gives this everyday food product a very special touch. The originality and perfect realisation of this 1951 object poster make it an icon, which was even acquired and put on display by the MOMA.
