Brightly colored as usual, this poster by Jacques Nathan-Garamond uses smooth and simple lines to create a modern view of Rome. It has an interesting duality to see: the three dimensional foreground with light and shadows, and the two dimensional back with flat and cartoon like houses. Nathan transformed the ancient Rome architecture style into a more Bauhaus look, but cleverly kept the classic columns and ancient remains to represent Rome.

Jacques Nathan-Garamond (1910 - 2001) was a French graphic designer. He studied at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and served as Director of Contemporary Architecture before his career as a designer. After the war, Nathan-Garamond became a graphic designer and designed a piece for 1949 UNESCO exposition on the Rights of Man. He also created commercial designs for corporations like Mazda, Air France and Telefunken. He later founded the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) and served as a professor at the International School and professor at the École Supérieure d'Arts Graphiques Penninghen. His works are in permanent collections of major institutions such as Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Posters are essential to Air France’s communications. It has one of the greatest collections in the world with over 1500 posters created by the most famous illustrators. Air France posters are usually striking, with few words, and depict destinations as dream-like and air travel as making dreams come true.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
