This is a beautiful image created to promote the International Maritime Exposition held in Bordeaux, France from May - November 1907. We see one of the typical ships of that era bedecked with flags of the world to emphasize the participation of so many countries in the event. The crest of the city of Bordeaux as well as some of its scenic highlights adds more character to this beautiful image.

Antoine Ponchin (1872 - ?) was a painter and illustrator well known for his nautical scenes. Born in Marseille, Ponchin was influenced early by maritime life. He followed his father into a life as an artist, winning the prestigious Hors-Concours title and also becoming the official painter of the French Navy. His works fall into the school of Impressionism, and his treatment of light is highlighted in this pretty image.

  • 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.
