Sale 2266 Lot 39
ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) GRASSE. 1927.
42 1/4x30 3/4 inches, 107 1/2x78 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
This is Broders' first poster where his figures take on a stylized, elongated, Art Deco look. As such it is a watershed image that heralds his entrance into the next stage of his artistry. "It perfectly displays the talent and technique of the artist who plays with shadow and light and whose light-handed but firm design and pastel colors, succeeds in evoking the pleasant atmosphere of a peaceful and quiet resort where pedestrians stroll under a canopy of trees" (Azur p. 135). Broders p. 89, Perry / Broders p. 25, Riviera 63, Azur 162, Zagrodzki 240.
