Albert Brenet was the official artist for the French Navy and Air Force, starting in 1936. He traveled by sea often, always carrying his sketchbook and documenting scenes both on the water and of life on board. He created many commemorative and promotional posters. This poster was created for Compagnie de Navigation Sud-Atlantique, a French shipping company which was a subsidiary of the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique or French Line that was operated by the Chargeurs Réunis (United Shippers). It shows the ship the “Laennec,” which was built by Ateliers & Chantiers de La Loire in St.Nazaire.
