Here is a lovely mid-century travel poster titled Ma Champagne, France, Champagne Ardenne.
The main image was designed by the 5 year old Francoise who has proudly signed the piece "Francoise 5 ans 7 mois". I love the way she has added the fact that she is not just 5 she is 5 years and 7 months old. The poster was produced by the "Comite Regional De Tourisme Champagne - Ardenne" to promote travel to this famous region.
A must have for a fan of wine or Champagne.
The poster shows the details of the printer that printed it in the bottom right hand border.
Like most posters of this period it was printed to the highest of standards. Known as a lithographic poster, lithography was a highly skilled process, and very time consuming. It gradually fell out of favour for these reasons. The finished product was a beautifully clear image, which gives the poster a painterly feel.
Original posters are highly collectable, and also make beautiful art for your walls. They have steadily risen in value and collectability over the past 30 years, and are now seen as a hot, and trendy investment. Vintage posters are sure to hold their value, or rise in value over the coming years.
Dimensions of the poster: 102cm x 62cm (40” x 25”). Framed dimensions: 106.6cm x 68.5cm (42" x 27").
Framed in a solid oak wooden frame. Each oak frame is slightly different with natural grains running through the wood.
Condition: Excellent, minor creasing to the borders.
