I imagine it's not very good business for a poster dealer to admit to playing favorites, but we love this wonderful poster, which was amongst my first purchases when I opened the gallery.
This is the second time we are graced by this lovely lady's presence: the first one sold and we were lucky enough to get our hands on another print. She's lovely and perky and happy all the time (if only life were that simple for all of us!) Just think - when she wins the lottery she's going to buy a house, a car, a cow and some chickens! This poster is pure delight - not only the delight on the face of the lottery ticket buyer, but in the choice of colors, the layout, the subject … the message is clear: anything is possible!
Vincent was for many years an illustrator for humor and fashion magazines, and didn’t begin creating posters until his forties. Once he did however, he was most prolific. Along with his many automobile posters, especially notable are his posters for the Bon Marche department store which he designed between 1925 and 1932. All combine humor and elegance and not uncommonly, feature a svelte, fashionable woman in the sleek new styles of the day. Poster measures 15.5 x 23.5 inches, is linen backed and in excellent condition.
