About The Poster:  What inspires a health-boost getaway more than a lively green forest-scape? Colin knew how to use style and color to get the message across - Bagnoles de L'orne is a commune in North-Western France known for its therapeutic thermal baths and their magic-like healing powers. The effect of the poster draws on an aura of mystery from the dense forest and the relaxing effect of water.

"Paul Colin (27 June 1892 in Nancy, France - 18 June 1985 in Nogent-sur-Marne) was one of France’s greatest poster artists. Made famous in 1925 by his poster for the Revue Nègre, which helped to launch the career of Joséphine Baker (who became his mistress), he worked for over forty years in the theatre, creating not only posters but also numerous sets and costumes. Very Art Deco at the outset, (his Le Tumulte noir is a masterpiece of the genre), his style quickly became highly personal and impossible to categorize: the synthetic accuracy of his portraits, the evocative force of his posters for grand causes so marked him as a master of visual communication that his work today remains relevant and fresh. A student of Eugène Vallin and Victor Prouvé, he is considered a master of the modern school of poster art. He is the author of over 1400 posters and many theatrical set and costume designs. He was the master of painter Philippe Derome and poster artists duo Lefor-Openo" (Source: Wikipedia)
