The simplicity of Art Deco never fails to grab our attention - product placement is front and center, colors are used to their fullest, and the message is loud and clear. What's not to like? Henri Le Monnier produced many fine works in both posters and comics, but we like this one the best - it is clean, elegant, and makes you want to reach for the nearest bottle of Cordial Medoc (which, I believe, is still made). Although Henri Le Monnier was mainly a poster artist and illustrator (for example, on Louis Desnoyers's 'Les Aventures de Robert-Robert' and Gilbert Dupé's 'La Route d'Honolulu'), he was also active in the comics field. Born in Paris, Le Monnier studied drawing and painting at the École Pilon and the School for Decorative Arts. As a poster artist, he worked for printers like Lutecia (1923-32), Joseph Charles (1934-43), and Gaillard (1934-54). Also, he pursued a career in illustrating. He was present in Fantasia, Le Sourire, Le Journal Amusant, L'Oeuvre, and Marianne during the 1920s and 1930s.

This poster is in excellent condition, measures 22.5 x 30.5 inches, and it is linen backed.
