Charbonnieres-les-Bains is a small, quaint town located in the western suburbs of Lyon in France. As designated by the text on the lower portion of the poster, Charbonnieres-les-Bains is just 8 kilometers, or 5 miles from Lyon. This lush poster gives viewers a charming glance of the small town. The image is framed by a verdant expanse of forestry which gives emphasis to the centermost portion of the poster, where residents of the small French town can be seen sauntering along a pavilion.
Roger Broders (1883-1953) was a French posterist and illustrator working in the early twentieth century. He is well known for his many travel posters, which feature scenic regions of France. He developed a simple design format that showcased the location with bold colors and minimal text. He often traveled to the locations he pictured via his sponsor, P.L.M. railways. Broders' relationship with P.L.M. began through a connection with his wife, which would prove fortuitous for the artist. Although his posters are well known and highly sought after, he produced less than 100 designs in his life which makes most of his works very rare.
