Original SNCF French Travel Poster Normandie by Raoul Dufy 1954
Item Details
Description
This very attractive scenic poster was created by the French Railway Authority in the post World War II era to promote visitor traffic to the French countryside in Normandie. Located 2 hours from Paris, Normandy ( Normandie in French) is a lush area with many green spaces as well as seaside areas. This image was created by Raoul Dufy in a format that was used repeatedly by the French Railways to popularize travel to various regions. The format uses a central scene surrounded by a beige border with a simple bold title on the bottom. This poster was issued with English text but other versions were created in French text. Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) was a French Fauvist painter, who is known for his colorful and loosely painted art style. Many of his works feature landscapes and social events, a favorite of which were regattas and seascapes. Impressionist landscape painters, such as Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro had profound influence on Dufy's artistic sensibilities. In 1952 he received the grand prize for painting at the 26th Venice Biennale. 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.
