Art Deco stylings are on full display in this 1930 travel poster for Grenoble by artist Gaston Gorde (1908-1995). The simplified palette of green, blue, and red creates dramatic contrasts between the male tennis player in the Jardin des Dauphins and the city of Grenoble he looks out onto. The French Alps loom in the background as clouds roll in.

The Jardin des Dauphins is a public park built into the ancient fortifications surrounding the Alpine town of Grenoble. Once a former estate that was laid to waste following the French Revolution, the gardens were re-imagined at the beginning of the 20th Century as the public recreation area it is today. We are told in this poster that Grenoble is the "capital of the French Alps". While still a major hub for research, universities, and leisure, Grenoble was even more of a busy industrial town when this poster was created.

Unfortunately, not much is known of artist Gaston Gorde. He created several other posters in this time period, mostly for events and produced in the French Alpine region.

  • 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.
