VALENTINE - les belles peintures

Study the play with the stroke. See how the ideal of the Spanish mural continues into the underscore.

The Gravelle painting features some kind of a reference number: 2.3.56 - 80. Probably the date (March 2nd, 1956) and the serial of the wall.

Ripolin is a very common paint in France and Spain.
Although still very nice, this mural is only a pale reminiscence of the fullfledged Ripolin logo. The three men are brushing: the first on the wall, the others on the back of the previous person. The message says that Ripolin is used on metals, wood, plaster and more.

with brush.

Look carefully and discover what's hidden by the Ripolin: Crème Eclipse.
It's easiest to see in the bottom right corner where the unhappy face is. The word express hides the sunny face. Find Crème Eclipse in the cleaning section

au latex (= with latex)
One of the better walls with an excellent use of the available space. The theme fits the product and is repeated on the tube. We witness the hand finishing the last streaks. This mural lives.

The tube carries the brand EL SOL with an image of the sun

This label tells us everything.
• El Sol is represented by the brilliant sun.
• The name of the product Sol-paint with latex couldn't possibly tell more.
• Seen how the Solatex stretches?
• Paint is a colloid of solid particles dispersed in a liquid. Could you say it in one word? 'Paint is a ...'   Exactly, a sol. Impress your friends.

We've been told that this wall does exist since the 1970s. We were not able to get that confirmed.
