This is an original stone lithograph crated in 1926 by Henry le Monnier to promote Chablis wines in France. It is often said that a talented poster artist can tell so much of a story in a single image. Here, le Monnier shows the viewer that fine Chablis wines are enjoyed around the globe. He conveys his message with rich details and bold graphics. The colors of this poster work so well together.
Henry Le Monnier (1893-1978) created a small body of work in the field of advertising posters. He worked mainly for the printer Affiches Lutetia, which was based in Paris. Most of his designs were created from the 1920s - late 1930s and are colorful, spirited, and somewhat humorous. His works are much in the same style of Leonetto Cappiello and Jean D'Ylen, who were more popular at that time. Le Monnier has a fine artistic hand and many of his posters are quite valuable in today's market.

If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
