GEO DORIVAL (1879-1968) VERS LE MONT-BLANC. Group of 3 posters. 1928.
Each approximately 41x29 1/2, 104x75 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris
Condition varies, generally A.
A dramatic, "minimalist" (Voyage p. 35) series of France's famed Mont Blanc, framed between the silhouetted slopes of tree-lined hills. The graphic, zipper-like train track serves to both "open" up the mountain to view and leads the eye towards the focal point. Posted side-by-side, these three posters create a cinematic effect, a unique graphic concept among travel posters. Hillion p. 214, Voyage p. 35, Alpes 43, Skiing p. 53, Art Deco p. 54.
