About The Poster: Raymond Savignac, often just abbreviated to "Savignac", was a French graphic artist famous for his commercial posters. He was born on November 6, 1907 in Paris, and died on October 31, 2002 in Trouville-sur-mer, aged 94. His work is distinguished by a humorous simplicity. Self-taught, he started designing porsters under Cassandre. A permanent display of his work can be found in the Montebello Museum in Trouville.

Savignac was given the honour of designing the poster for the opening of the Musee de L'Affiche or Poster Museum in Paris. The museum is now housed in the Louvre.
