Bibliography: Jack Rennert. The Posters of Leonetto Cappiello. The Poster Art Library Posters Please Inc. New York 2004. Page 163. Ill. 240: "Raising a frying pan above her head with one hand while swinging carefree on the spinning wheel of progress, a Cappiello sylph suggests how easily this tube of Pâte Éclair metal varnish keeps shiny things shiny. All this is conveyed by a touch of essentially primary colors. Only Cappiello could transform a stove polish into a product of glamour, speed and excitement."
