VALENTINE - les belles peintures
Notice 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.
- la pintura ideal
Valentine - the ideal paint.
This is a stronger statement than in French.

Place St Anne, Rennes (France);
August 1998; pict. A. Guët
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.
You will find this wall also in our liquor section.

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

Since 1760 Lewis Berger Paint your imagination
In 1760 a chemist from Frankfurt, Louis Steigenberger, went to London.
He brought his own secret method of manufacturing the then precious Prussian Blue. At the end of the century
he was selling 19 different pigments already and he had his name changed into Lewis Berger.
In 1923 in Calcutta, an Englishman set up a small paint company, Hadfield's (India) Limited.
How both came together in what is now Berger Paints India is a long and complex story.

émail gel lak
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.
The label is telling 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.
