Artist: Vincent, René
It's probably not wise for a poster dealer to disclose their personal favourites, but I have to admit that Vincent is among the poster artists I admire most: not necessarily because his art is meaningful or 'important' but perhaps because it is fun, spirited and it never fails to make me smile.
Vincent was for many years an illustrator for humor and fashion magazines and didn’t begin creating posters until his forties. Once he did, however, he was most prolific. Along with his many automobile posters, especially notable are his posters for the Bon Marche department store which he designed between 1925 and 1932. All combine humor and elegance and not uncommonly, feature a svelte, fashionable woman in the sleek new styles of the day.
Matted and ready to frame. Rare.
