The 1985 Monte Carlo Open took place at the Monte Carlo Country Club in Monaco from April 1 through April 7, 1985. The tennis match was played on outdoor courts and was part of the 1985 Nabisco Grand Prix. Well-known graphic artist Pierre Fix-Masseau was commissioned to design this vintage original poster commemorating the event.
Pierre Fix-Masseau was the son of accomplished French sculptor, Pierre Felix-Masseau. Fix-Masseau began his career as an apprentice to master Art Deco designer A.M. Cassandre, for whom he worked for from 1926 to 1928. This experience greatly impacted Fix-Masseau, who continued to work within the Art Deco style for the remainder of his long career. Cassandre's interest in foreshortening, heightened focal points, and flattened planes can be seen in Fix-Masseau's works. Fix-Masseau combined Cassandre's influence with his own mastery of perspective and intricate detail to create his own, distinctive style. Fix-Masseau is best remembered for his posters featuring railway and automotive themes.
