Marin Marie was a painter and illustrator known for ocean images with ships and sailboats. He was commissioned by a number of ocean liner shipping companies to create advertisements and promotional images. This example was created for the Messageries Maritimes, which was a French merchant shipping company from 1851 until it merged with another company in 1977. It shows the ship the "Champollion," which sailed the Egypt-Syria line in the 1920s and 30s. It sailed during WWII, and at one point in 1940 was caught between Italian and British battle ships, but came out unscathed, and survived a few other close calls during this period. It was used to transfer troops during and after the war.

  • 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.
