This is a wonderful example of the art deco style of the gifted French artist, Roger Broders. In this image we view the bustling harbor of Marseille, France with its many ships in port. Marseille, being the closest point in France to North Africa, has been the important commercial link from France to North Africa. It is also, the destination of many immigrants from North Africa because of its proximity to the mainland of Europe.

Roger Broders (1883-1953) was a French posterist and illustrator working in the early twentieth century. He is well known for his many travel posters, which feature scenic regions of France. He developed a simple design format that showcased the location with bold colors and minimal text.He often traveled to the locations he pictured via his sponsor P.L.M. railways. Broders's relationship with P.L.M. began through a connection with his wife, which would prove fortuitous for the artist. Although his posters are well known and highly sought after, he only produced less than 100 designs in his life.
