BERNARD VILLEMOT (1911-1989) BALLY. 1989.

Here, in his last poster, Villemot displays his mastery of the art form. In an impressive vertical format, this agile lady kicks around the globe, yet her shadow is cast as a man's leg. An alluring and daring poster. Villemot / Bon Salle 313, The Poster 731, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 113.
