Created in the 1950's by the artist Lucien Boucher, this is one of a series of posters commissioned by Air France to show their routes around the world. The artist uses small local scenes from many countries to show the variety of destinations reached by Air France at that time. These posters were usually distributed to travel agents around the world as promotional items. The fine detail and colorful artwork are truly eye catching.
Lucien Boucher (1889-1971) was a French graphic designer and illustrator most known to collectors for his many beautiful Air France travel posters. Boucher got his start as a cartoonist for the French humor magazine, Le Rire before moving into product and cinema poster design. He experimented in Surrealism, as well as Art Deco in his early advertising.

Boucher's unique mid-century painting style combines his Art Deco influence and traditional painting to offer a fresh look for advertising. His body of work for Air France is well regarded by collectors as a leader in the mid-century style. Among these artworks are Boucher's series of "Planispheres," which depicted the ever-expanding travel routes of the Air France airline. He completed the series of Planispheres from 1934-1962, continually developing the imagery with a fresh approach.
