This poster iamge was created in 1937 to encourage travel to Bordeaux in France. Situated approximately 300 miles southwest from Paris it is near the Atlantic coast of France . It is known for its Garonne River which divides the city into a left bank and right bank community.

Jean Dupas (1882 - 1964) was trained as an academic painter and became a successful graphic designer and interior decorator. His style is the essence of refined and luxurious French Art-Deco, with a sophisticated, if somewhat stiff elegance. Outside of the poster world, Dupas is largely remembered for his illustrations for Vogue, the splendid brochures done for Max Furrier produced by Draeger, and his decorations for the steamship Normandie (now at the MoMA). Within the poster world his most famous work was for the XVme Salon des Artistes Decorateurs. He also designed posters for the fashion world both in Paris and London, where he did work for the London Underground. In 1937, he designed this poster for Bordeaux, his birth place, as a promotion for the city's harbor, wine and monuments. The alluring, Art-Deco, allegorical beauty most likely representing the Garonne (Bordeaux's river), is literally supporting the wonderment of all that Bordeaux has to offer. Weill, p. 188 no. 317, Reclame 98.

  • 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.
