About The Poster: This poster was designed by the prolific poster artist, Julien Lacaze (1886-1971) for the destination of Val les Bains . 

According to a popular French tourism website "The charming little spa resort of Vals-les-Bains, in Ardèche, produces the famous Eau de Vals, a sparkling mineral water which is rich in bicarbonates, enjoyed both for its taste and its digestive properties.

Nestling in the heart of the verdant countryside of the Ardeche Mountain Regional Nature Park, on the banks of the Volane, Vals-les-Bains has a pleasant, welcoming atmosphere. The spa quarter, built in the style of the Belle Époque, is especially good for relaxation, with its riverside parks full of different plant species and footbridges across the Volane.

Vals-les-Bains is also a place for leisure activities, with its casino, theatre, cinema, municipal swimming pool, mini-golf, the surrounding countryside (good for hiking and mountain biking), its summer events and night-time markets in July and August. The thermal baths, as well as specialising in treating digestive ailments, diabetes and obesity, also offer courses of treatment to promote well-being, and help you get back into shape. Their spa, with a Jacuzzi, swimming-pool, aquajets, Turkish baths and face and body treatments, has everything to delight those looking for relaxation!"

This beautiful region was perfectly captured in Lacaze's poster with its elegant lines and flowing colors. 

Poster is in overall very good condition with pinholes in the corners and some small margin tears that will disappear when the piece is framed.
