The Belgian Congo was a colony of Belgium in the central part of Africa between 1908 - 1960 when it became an independent country under today's name of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Belgian Congo was known for its relatively advanced system of education and industry with it having one of Africa's largest labor forces. While it has experienced many periods of conflict in its history, the country is one of the strongest of African nations today.

This image was created in the 1950's by an artist named Miessen to depict the location of the country and to invite the visitor to enjoy some of the wildlife such as the Okapi (zebra giraffe) that existed in The Belgian Congo. This poster was also printed with French text .

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in very good condition. There are some printer's imperfections that do not affect the overall appeal of the poster. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

  • 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.
