This is an exceptional poster created during the very early days of aviation. Father Time races across the globe, a bag of coins in hand, as a plane with bird features tails him closely behind. The message from French reads, "Time is money, wings save time". It was printed by the French Aeronautical Undersecretary on its third anniversary.

Georges Emile Marie Villa (1883-1965) was a French cartoonist, caricaturist, engraver, lithographer and illustrator. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français. He served in World War I as an Air Force Captain. Prior to the war he had established himself as portrait painter. In the 1920's he found success in the graphic arts. Villa illustrated popular fiction as well as advertising posters in the figurative style of Leonetto Cappiello. He is known for his erotic drawings in charcoal and pastel, which is can be seen in this artwork for Vita-Raisin Lemale. Villa is a recipient of the Knights of the Legion of Honor.
