SNCF Normandie is a 1952 French travel advertisement by artist Raoul Dufy for the French Railway. The French Railway is commonly known as SNCF, Societe Nationale de Chemin de Fer. Throughout the years, they have commissioned prominent artists to depict well known destinations in France to encourage train travel by the French public and visitors.

This poster features the northern province of Normandie, which is located only 2 hours from Paris. Its accessibility via the railroad to Paris allowed for the region to become known as a weekend getaway for Parisians.

Tsuguharu (Leonard) Foujita (1886-1968) was a Japanese-born painter who spent most of his life and career in France. Applying his traditional ink techniques to Western-style paintings made a name for the artist in the Roaring Twenties art scene in Paris. He was close contemporaries and friends with Man Ray, Modigliani, Picasso, and other important artists of Montparnasse. This poster was created towards the end of Foujita's career, a few years after he became a French citizen.

  • 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.
