What a joy to live the Summer in Monte Carlo! The French text on this rare poster by Louis Icart truly says it all. Two beautiful women relax on a stone on the boardwalk in Monte Carlo, showing off their alluring bathing suits. The Mediterranean sea unfurls behind them with not a cloud in the sky. It is a sensual and deceptively simple composition; one of the most desirable posters created for Monte Carlo.

Louis Icart (1888–1950) was a French painter and illustrator well known for his erotic depiction of glamorous women and roaring 1920s Paris. He rose to prominence in the Art Deco period, becoming the rare success in both Europe and America. It was not uncommon for an illustration of Icart's to be produced in both French and English. He diversified his career later in life to the fashion world, as a major illustrator. This rare poster was created just two years before Icart passed away.

  • 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.
