About This Item

These days, nostalgic visions of France go hand in hand with early twentieth-century train travel in large part because of colorful posters created by railway companies and hotels to boost tourism. These artworks used vibrant, jewel-like hues to adorn lush vistas, quaint fishing villages, and rail routes hugging rocky mountainsides. Nearly all included the soothing blue of a lake, a river, or the ocean, ideal lures for vacation-minded travelers.

The twelve posters reproduced in this calendar come primarily from the interwar period, boom years for French tourism that by 1928 placed the country first among European destinations. Though often little is known about the artists, their works now fascinate everyone from casual observers to studied collectors of vintage art and design.
