This scenic poster is said to be a view of the harbor of St. Jean de Cap Ferrat on the French Riviera. The idyllic setting makes the viewer wish that they were able to enjoy L’Ete’ sur La Cote D’azur ( Summer on the Blue Coast – French Riviera) . The poster was created for the French Railway PLM – Paris.Lyon.Mediterrane . These 3 hubs were the main departure points for rail travel in France during the 1920’s and into the 1930’s. The poster was intended to stimulate tourist travel to the area especially in the summer.
The artist, Guillaume Georges Roger (1867 – 1943) was born in Paris and was classically trained as a watercolorist as well as a pastel artist. He was for his talent in creating scenic paintings both in landscapes and seascapes. In this image he mixes both to achieve the interesting perspective the harbor from under the plant crowned terrace.
