This charming design was created by the talented artist Rene Vincent in 1909 to promote a very special event at the Parisian Department Store, Au Printemps for a Fete des Fleurs ( Flower Festival) starting on Monday March 15 . The elegant woman in the image is seen with her abundant bouquet of fresh flowers. Clearly it was an event of high fashion and style based on the imagery of the poster.
René Vincent (1879–1936) was a French illustrator who was prevalent in the 1920s-1930s. He worked in an Art Deco style and became famous for his poster designs.
