Corsica is a land of rugged and dramatic beauty, and this c1950 poster does a great job highlighting that. As viewers, we peek through a cave opening to see the port revealed, full of sunshine. This poster was commissioned by French shipping line, CGT (Companie Generale Transatlantique), so it makes sense that one of the few things we can spot is one of their large ships pulling into the harbor.

Compagnie Générale Transatlantique (CGT) was commonly called "The French Line" abroad. The company began as a shipping company in the mid-1800s and survived both World Wars. Once air travel began to rise, its passenger services declined. By the 1970s, GCT had merged with other French ocean liners companies.

Edouard Collin (1906-1983) created this striking poster around 1950. Collin began his artistic career at the renowned Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris. He was the artistic director for CGT from 1950 -1959, and created many wonderful posters for the company. He also designed the ships' menus, schedules, and many other design elements.

  • 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.
