- This is an original vintage poster created in 1978 by the highly regarded French artist, Bernard Villemot. It is an image created for the Bally Company to highlight its elegant and sophisticated leather shoes. The twin figures are seen sitting in an image representing a lotus flower. They are totally nude except for their elegant Bally footwear. The Bally Company was founded in 1851 by Carl Bally located in Switzerland, and originally manufactured elastic ribbon. The company quickly grew to an industry leader by 1870. The company has diversified to all areas of fashion specializing in leather products with outlets around the world.Bernard Villemot (1911-1989) was one of the foremost poster artists in the 1960’s and 1970’s, known for his innovative design and use of color. Born into a bourgeoisie family, his artistic pursuit was encouraged by his father, who was a well-known cartoonist. Villemont received training at the famous L’Ecole Paul, a school for poster artists founded and taught by famed poster artist Paul Colin. To many, he represents the end of the age when most of the poster designers are trained artists. As the world began to shift in the 1960s towards ad agencies and graphic design implemented by art departments, Villemot stood firm in his belief that the only way to advertise effectively “was to treat a poster as though it were a painting”. His distinctive style was commissioned by many prominent advertisers, most notably Orangina, Perrier, and Bally.To read more about Villemot please click on the link - https://rossartgroup.wordpress.com/2015/11/12/the-work-of-bernard-villemot/This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
