This is a wonderful example of the art deco style of the gifted French artist, Roger Broders. In this image we view the bustling harbor of Marseille, France with its many ships in port. Marseille, being the closest point in France to North Africa, has been the important commercial link from France to North Africa. It is also, the destination of many immigrants from North Africa because of its proximity to the mainland of Europe.

Roger Broders (1883-1953) was a French posterist and illustrator working in the early twentieth century. He is well known for his many travel posters, which feature scenic regions of France. He developed a simple design format that showcased the location with bold colors and minimal text. He often traveled to the locations he pictured via his sponsor P.L.M. railways. Broders's relationship with P.L.M. began through a connection with his wife, which would prove fortuitous for the artist. Although his posters are well known and highly sought after, he only produced less than 100 designs in his life.

  • 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.
