Cassandre from 1926 to 1928, who had a profound influence on Fix-Masseau's art deco style. Fix-Masseau is best remembered for his posters featuring railway and automotive themes.

This artwork was commissioned towards the end of the artist's life, but still captures the flair of elegant design that typified Fix-Masseau's artwork.
