An elegant woman arrives with her date at the Casino de Li Las for a night of dancing in this c1905 poster by Guillaume. The outdoor, Bordeaux -based Casino boasts of having music every evening, and the cameo in the bottom left shows us the expansive grounds by daylight. We are also told that visitors can easily arrive to the Casino by tram. The Casino de Li Las (a play on the French word for 'lilacs') was notorious at the time for its rigged games and debaucherous police raids - it's no wonder they hired Guillaume to try to give it a fresh face in this elegant poster.

Albert Guillaume (1873 – 1942) was one of the most prolific illustrators of his day, displaying thirty-two of his posters in the landmark Reims exhibition in 1896 and acting as a regular contributor of numerous illustrations to such journals as "Gil Blas" and "Figaro Illustre". Guillaume for many exemplifies Belle Époque poster art. His styling and choice of color helped define the movement, along with his more well-known counterparts such as Jules Cheret.

  • 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.
