This is one of a series of 4 images by Georges Mathieu commissioned by the Rhone Alpes region in France to promote its many scenic attractions. In this image, Mathieu suggests to the viewer the simple pleasures of sailing in Rhone Alpes from the blue water to the blue skies.

Rhône-Alpes which is now part of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, is a former region of southeast France that borders Switzerland and Italy. The Rhone-Alpes is centered in Lyon, one of France’s largest regions. The Rhone-Alpes stretches from Lake Geneva to Provence, offering tourists and locals alike plenty of activities to enjoy. The Rhone-Alpes offers the most prestigious skiing areas in France, bountiful vineyards and canyons for visitors to hike, raft, drink and sail.

Georges Mathieu (1921 - 2012) was a French painter and theorist who is credited with pioneering the Lyrical Abstraction movement, along with Informalism in post-WWII Paris. Mathieu’s work values rhythm and movement, each of his paintings have an "action" characteristic, resembling the flow of calligraphy and representing the frenzy of the internal mind. His work can be viewed today in the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others.

  • 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.
