Original Vintage Normandie Travel Poster by Foujita
Item Details
Description
SNCF Normandie is a 1952 French travel advertisement by artist Raoul Dufy for the French Railway. The French Railway is commonly known as SNCF, Societe Nationale de Chemin de Fer. Throughout the years, they have commissioned prominent artists to depict well known destinations in France to encourage train travel by the French public and visitors. This poster features the northern province of Normandie, which is located only 2 hours from Paris. Its accessibility via the railroad to Paris allowed for the region to become known as a weekend getaway for Parisians. Tsuguharu (Leonard) Foujita (1886-1968) was a Japanese-born painter who spent most of his life and career in France. Applying his traditional ink techniques to Western-style paintings made a name for the artist in the Roaring Twenties art scene in Paris. He was close contemporaries and friends with Man Ray, Modigliani, Picasso, and other important artists of Montparnasse. This poster was created towards the end of Foujita's career, a few years after he became a French citizen. This is an Original Vintage Poster. It is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
