Nothing exudes Art Deco quite like this poster. Created in 1930, Rayon des Soieries features the clean lines, simplified forms, and overall 'coolness' of this famed artistic movement. Rayon des Soieries was a one-act opera set in the silk section of a department store, which helps to explain the elegant figure in this design showing off the elegant wares.
Maurice Dufrene (1876 - 1955) was a French artist who worked in a wide variety of fields. Dufrene originally was an Art Nouveau artist who subsequently transitioned into the Art Deco movement. He was the head of design for the famous department store, Galeries Lafayette, is well regarded for his furniture design, and also worked in interior design. It is interesting to note that Dufrene not only created the poster for this opera, but also its set design and costumes.
