This is a classic French late Art Deco period poster featuring a buff rugby player keeping pace with a stallion - due no doubt to Lavocat, an 'irradiated' food. Even today the American FDA believes that irradiating food can burn off harmful bacteria, airborne germs and other microbes which can adversely affect food. We love the depth of color, the texture and oomph of this poster - powerful and very, very Art Deco. Signed in the lithographic plate by Prost and printed by the Fort Printers in Lyon. Measures 26 x 36 inches and professionally mounted on linen.
Art Deco was a popular international art design movement from 1925 until the 1940s, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional and modern. This poster is in excellent condition - the colors really pop and we feel it will look wonderful framed!
