About The Poster: Constant Duval was a French artist who depicted numerous French monuments and sights from 1910 to 1937 for companies seeking to draw attention to the infrastructures (including the French national railway) available in the country. His background as a landscape artist made him one of the more sought-after artists of his time.

According to a popular French website, "La Bourboule, located on either side of the Dordogne river at an altitude of 850 metres, is both a spa resort known for its curative water and an approved Green Resort (resort paying particular attention to its natural environment) and Station Kid (resort making children's facilities and activities a priority). It attracts a large number of spa patients and even more kids! Les Grands Thermes thermal baths, featuring typical belle-époque architecture, specialises in treating respiratory and skin conditions. It also offers well-being and fitness breaks."

Poster is in overall excellent condition with pinholes in all corners (which will disappear when the piece is framed). Rare. From a private collection.
