Claudine is the eponymous main character of a series of novels published in the early 1900s. Written in the format of a diary, the Claudine series follows a 15 year old girl as she enters adulthood. The series was a massive success, but not without a bit of controversy.

As seen in this poster, the author of the Claudine series was advertised as ‘Willy’, a pen name for author Henry Gaulthier-Villars. His wife, Colette, was the actual author of the series and years later would take his estate to court to own the publishing rights to the series.

Here we see Claudine, staring us down with a telling smirk. She is surrounded by text about the details of the first two novels of the series; published in 1900 and 1901.

The artist of this poster is L. Lucien Faure, of which little is known. He was an active illustrator at the turn of the 20th century, and created both posters and other types of illustrations.

  • 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.
