About The Poster: A fabulous Art Deco poster advertising La Mare de Criqueboeuf in Normady, designed for the French National Railways by Dorival.
The SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer français; "French National Railway Corporation"), is France's national state-owned railway company. Begun in 1938, it used posters from its inception to advertise the multitude of destinations which were served by its rail-lines. We feel that this poster, created shortly after the company itself was created is a wonderful testament to Art Deco design: strong colors and visuals which pop, clean graphic design and great typography. Classic! Poster is unlined and in very good condition.
We have a few other posters by Dorival, who was a prolific artist during the first half of the 20th century in France.
Poster is in very good condition with a small area of restoration and overpainting on the left border. Linen backed.
