About The Poster: A fabulous Art Deco poster advertising the charm and romance of a bridge in Avignon that is celebrated in an old song. Poster is designed by G. Neizab in the mid-1930.

One of a series of posters designed by the same artist, this poster is unlined and in overall very good condition.

A little Avignon Bridge trivia: The current version of the song, which talks about dancing on the bridge seems to have come from an 18th century operetta set in Avignon and called “Le Sourd ou l'Auberge Pleine,” (The Deaf Man or the Full Inn). This musical was reworked several times throughout the years and spread the song's fame worldwide. (thegoodlifefrance.com)
