This Vin Fou Medieval poster by artist Paul Grimault featuring the name of Henri Maire on the upper left-hand corner of the image is a festive poster depicting a celebration of sorts. By virtue of the use of bubbles and the beads scattered amongst the table, Grimault does a wonderful job of making the drinking of Vin Fou sparkling wine look like a joyous time. The bottom text of the poster brings this all together, reading "the greatest breed of great sparkling wines."
Henri Maire was a French businessman and namesake of the French Estate. In 1939, Maire inherited 26 hecatres of vines which gradually assembled into a huge estate that reached its height of success in the 1950s with the establishment of the Vin Fou, or Mad Wine.
Unfortunately, there is little information on artist Paul Grimault.
