France's Loterie Nationale (National Lottery) was established May 31, 1933. By November that same year, the first drawing of numbers for a prize took place. Since then, weekly draws were supported by extensive advertising campaigns, with a poster appearing for each draw. Many well-known artists were commissioned to design those ads, including René Vincent, Jean Effel, Pol Ferjac, and Derouet et Lesacq.
This particular poster, created for the draw taking place on Saturday February 15, 1975, was designed by Fix-Masseau. His work was used by the Loterie Nationale numerous times throughout the late 1960s and '70s, and this particular Valentine's Day edition - with its warm cherry red and bright green birds - is especially adorable!
Vintage lithographic poster is unlined and in excellent condition.
