Features the complete works of the celebrated travel poster artist Roger Broders, whose name is synonymous with French Art Deco. Not only is this the first time that all of Broders work, including previously unknown variants and non-travel images, has come to auction, it is the first time the complete works of any poster artist have been offered at one time. The posters comprise an outstanding private collection that is remarkable for its range and for the fine condition of most of the pieces.
Stunning examples of images depicting glamorous men and women typifying the jazz age, such as Vichy / Comité des Fêtes, circa 1928, pictured top left.
Sur la Côte d'Azur, circa 1931.
Stylistic experiments, like Marseille / Point de Départ de la Côte d'Azur, circa 1929.
Very rare posters such as Dunkerque, circa 1930.
And many winter sports posters, which Broders is well known for, including Chamonix Mt. Blanc, 1930.
