Chats With Mickey: Roger Broders & Art Deco Posters
Hi, I’m Mickey Ross, the founder and principal of The Ross Art Group. Today I’d like to introduce you to an important poster artist of the Art Deco period, Roger Broders.
So many of our clients love the look of the Art Deco movement, with its bright colors, crisp lines, and simplified forms. While we all know and love this look, many don’t realize that Art Deco posters are relatively hard to come by. This sophisticated movement lasted in posters from around 1925-1939, and was seen by many companies of the time as too avant –garde for the general public to appreciate.
While he created fewer than 100 poster images in his lifetime, Roger Broders is synonymous with French Art Deco poster design. His usage of flat large planes of color in bright tones was both graphically stunning, as well as groundbreaking. His simplification of forms bordered on cubism, and transformed poster art of the time from the purely decorative to something much more avant –garde.
