This poster was created for a retrospective of French artist Jean-Gabriel Domergue in 1966.
Jean-Gabriel Domergue (1889 – 1962), often described as the "inventor of the pin up", was known for his long-necked and delicate rendering of women. Domergue lived and worked in Monte Carlo, which is in the Cote d’Azur. He rubbed elbows with high society, organized formal balls, designed fashion accessories and was somewhat of a local celebrity. His poster style was befitting of the upper-class luxuries he advertised. In 1955, Domergue was named curator of the Jacquemart-Andre Museum in Paris and later named a fellow of the Academy of Fine Arts.
