Train and Globes is a 1990 print by art deco artist Pierre Fix Masseau. The artwork was a unique design commissioned for a marketing event in 1990. The event had a "global networking" theme which Fix Masseau incorporated into his design in the form of the two world globes- a special request by commission. The globes appear prominently above the train. The train itself was a self-reference to Fix Masseau’s famous Exactitude poster from 1932.

The marketing event was unfortunately cancelled and as a result very few prints remain in existence. This print has been individually hand-signed in pencil by Fix Masseau.
