This poster, advertising the "Summer Season" at the General Exposition in Paris was created after 1930. It is a wonderful representation of the Art Deco style, which at the time was its prime in Europe and the United States. This modern poster features a vibrant combination of yellow, orange and brown hues, mirroring the hot temperatures of the summer season. The bold geometric forms of the Art Deco style can be observed in the poster through its asymmetric composition and strong rectangular forms.

The Art Deco movement was an offshoot of the groundbreaking 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts. The Art Deco movement was a pastiche of many different art styles, unified in the desire to be modern. Art Deco was heavily influenced by Cubism in its strong emphasis of bold, geometric forms and Fauvism in its common use of vibrant colours. Art Deco separates itself from other fine arts movements in its collective notion that the art object has no utilitarian functioning, or purpose except providing interesting visuals.

Unfortunately, there is little information on the artist of this poster, Pierre Segogne (? -1958).

  • 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.
