  • Fixine was a French brand for dye based in the small town of Sauveterre-la-Lémance in the South of France. The poster reads Teinture Menagere Pratique, which translates to practical household dye.
    Rousseau designed this poster in the 50s using bullfighting as the main topic. Bullfighting can still be found in France, particularly in the South so the use of the subject would have been well known by the public. The bright and rich colors of the bullfighter's clothes, cape and banderillas (the adorned sticks in the bull) are the example of the quality of the dyes. The vivid colors of the dyes stand out against the arid looking background.
