This is an original vintage poster composed of two panels printed together on one sheet, created in 1986 by the highly regarded artist, Bernard Villemot. It was created for the Bally Company to highlight the elegant and sophisticated leather shoes the company makes for both men and women. Here, the figures are whimsically abstracted, playing with positive and negative space. This print is hand signed by the artist, in pencil.

Bernard Villemot (1911-1989) was one of the foremost poster artists in the 1960’s and 1970’s, known for his innovative design and use of color. Born into a bourgeoisie family, his artistic pursuit was encouraged by his father, who was a well-known cartoonist. Villemot received training at the famous L’Ecole Paul, a school for poster artists founded and taught by famed poster artist Paul Colin. To many, he represents the end of the age when most of the poster designers are trained artists. As the world began to shift in the 1960s towards ad agencies and graphic design implemented by art departments, Villemot stood firm in his belief that the only way to advertise effectively "was to treat a poster as though it were a painting". His distinctive style was commissioned by many prominent advertisers, most notably Orangina, Perrier, and Bally.
