Paolo Garretto (1903-1989) was an Italian painter, mostly known world-wide in the 20s and 30s as a caricaturist. Known above all for his political portraits, he emerged as one of the most interesting innovators of graphics, advertising painting, posters and billboards, both for the light-hearted elegance of his composition and for the promptness with which he sensed his characters, and finally for the application of new or unusual graphic techniques.
He worked for the most important American magazines (Vanity Fair, Vogue, Fortune etc), as well as in Italian, French, German and English advertising. His geometric style fully represents the essence of Art Deco.
