This is an original stone lithographic poster created in 1931 by the talented French artist Jean D'Ylen. In this image we see a man suffering from rheumatism leaping from his car on the way to the therapeutic mineral bath and spa in Plombieres, France. It sometimes said that this man resembles the Monopoly man.
Jean Paul Beguin, better known as Jean D'Ylen (1886-1938) created many advertisements in this popular style, using stunning primary colors. The influence of Leonetto Cappiello on this artist's work is apparent in the dark background and the flowing, floating stance of the charismatic figure. After a career started as a jewelry designer, D'Ylen became an advertising illustrator for the publishing company Vercasson Paris. He later rose to prominence after Cappiello left the company in 1916.
