ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) BEAUSOLEIL / MONTE - CARLO SUPÉRIEUR. Circa 1928. 39 1/2x23 3/4 inches, 100 1/4x60 1/4 cm. L. Serre & Cie, Paris. Condition A: minor abrasions in upper image. Matted and framed. "The contrast between the reds, ochres and yellows used to depict Beausoleil and the blacks, gray and deep sea blue of the rest of the poster serves to glorify the city" (Azur p. 156-57). This is some of the most creative typography seen in Broders' posters - an unusually flamboyant style that he never repeats. Monte Carlo's casino and palace compound is visible in the distance. Broders p. 95, Perry / Broders p. 34, Riviera 100, Azur 189.
