About The Poster: In his very enlightening article "Loterie nationale : Mythes et symboles" written in 1969, the influential French journalist and author of many books on consumerism, education and advertising proposes an in-depth analysis of posters commissioned by the French lottery since 1953, date at which it began hiring some of France's best designers and developing a corpus of some of the most effective posters in history. Important designers included René Vincent, Jean Effel, Pol Ferjac, Drouet et Lesacq. This particular piece is signed Derouet-Lesacq who did a large number of pieces for the French lottery. The pair was composed of Edgar Derouet, artist and printer, and Charles Lesacq, artist. This particular poster is in keeping with their usual approach of placing a stylized character front-and center and respecting a very clean style. The poster is lined and in very good condition.
