About The Poster: This poster was commissioned by the early French railway Chemins de fer de Paris a Orleans (PO). The poster was designed by Charles Hallo (1884-1969), easily recognizable by his signature "ALO" in the lithographic plate, and features a representation of the statue of Saint-Foy. This statue is a part of what is known as the treasures of Conques, a collection of reliquaries associated to the The St. Foy abbey-church in Conques, a commune in southern France. Recently linen backed, this poster is in excellent condition.
