This image of an idyllic seascape is brought to life through vibrant color and the use of dramatic perspective. In the post-World War II era, all of the countries of Europe were vying for more tourism revenue as a means to economic recovery and in this image we view the vacationers enjoying some of the attractions of the seaside resorts. The French Riviera, with destinations including Nice, Cannes, and Saint Tropez were all part of this push to attract visitors. Since that time the French Riviera has grown in population as well as popularity.

Bernard Villemot was born in 1911 in Trouville, sur-Mer, France. It is in the style of Matisse that Villemot found the ultimate way in which to transform posters from product placement into true works of art. Between graduating school and the end of the War, the world had changed. Villemot and his contemporaries in France found themselves creating art in a country consumed with a spirit of rebuilding and re-invigoration. This high-energy spirit can be seen in all of Villemot's posters from the 1950s until his death in 1989.

  • 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.
