Poster commemorating the International Exposition of Barcelona in 1929 by the company Uralita

The piece shows a map of Barcelona with a caricature-like language in which different characters, located in the most emblematic sites in the city and near it, praise the virtues of the company Uralita and the material asbestos cement that it manufactured.

The artist, Frisco Millioud (1902-1939), was a famous Swiss illustrator and publicist who moved to Barcelona, where he contributed to many magazines and publications of the period.
