About The Poster: I've always loved this poster and when I recently saw it in Milan I just HAD TO HAVE IT!! It's one of those posters that I have seen at auctions over the years and lusted over (there are so many...) It's not a significant poster in the sense of a Cassandre or a Cappiello, but it is so very much of its period (Art Deco): there is a simplicity of message, a clean use of colors and a lovely and vibrant use of type. Created by well-known French artist and illustrator Andre Galland (1886 - 1965), this poster would surely liven up any room ...Galland came from humble beginnings. An eclectic artist, he created ceramics , posters and lithographs which are now actively sought by collectors.Co-founder of the Union of Artists French Designer in 1947 , he was will still its director until his death, nearly twenty years later. He was made Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1933.
