Sale 2266 Lot 49
ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) LA PLAGE DE CALVI. CORSE. 1928.
42 1/4x31 inches, 107 1/2x78 1/2 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
Condition A: expertly restored punch-holes in right margin.
"Broders loved to include his family in little ways in certain posters" (Broders p. 11). The design on this luxurious beach-goers wrap was likely modeled after a textile design originally made by Broders' wife, Marguerite. Lepeuve states that her knitwear appears in another Broders' poster (see lot 60), and this design is too similar not to be related. This poster also appears in a smaller size, English language variant. Broders p. 99, Perry / Broders p. 28, Voyage p. 80, La Mer p. 11.
