Leopold Metlicovitz (1868 - 1944) was a painter, commercial illustrator and theatrical designer, and is considered to be one of the fathers of Italian graphic design. Not much is known about the man's history, but his art and technical expertise certainly speak for themselves.

Here's a large set of his works. Enjoy.
And a short note from a smaller gallery:
Metlicovitz became a painter and portraitist without any formal training. He came to Milan in 1891 and joined the Ricordi Printing house, quickly becoming it's technical director. He developed an original approach to light and shadow and became one of Italy's greatest Poster artists creating some of the most famous "Mele" designs among others. A true Master.
