This alluring poster was created by Belgian National Railways to promote using their trains to travel to Chaudfontaine, home to thermal mineral water baths. While the healing properties of these natural baths are inventive enough to travel to the region, the promise of seeing a beautiful nude woman probably didn't hurt to include in this cheeky design.
The earliest known mention of Chaudfontaine's baths dates back to 1250. Located in the Liege region of Belgium, the hot mineral water springs have long been praised for their healing benefits. Chaudfontaine mineral water is also bottled and sold as a refreshing drink throughout Europe.
Armand Massonet (1892-1972) was a Belgian painter and illustrator. He served in WWI in the ambulance corps, while also creating numerous sketches of life on the front lines. After the War, he made a name for himself in France with his formal paintings.

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.
