ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) MARSEILLE PORTE DE L'AFRIQUE DU NORD. 1929.
39 1/2x24 3/4 inches, 100x63 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
Condition A-: repaired tears and minor restoration in corners and margins.
In 1928, Broders' talent entered its "best period and he produces masterpieces which appear at the Pantheon of travel posters. He is able to simplify, to stylize the subject without letting it lose its charm or warmth--a feat which Cassandre, a master in this field, was never able to achieve" (Perry / Broders p. 13). "In the era of Cubism, Roger Broders underwent a graphic revolution" (La Mer p. 166). This geometrically appealing image manages to convey the hustle and bustle of the harbor, yet creates a stylized order out of the chaos. Broders p. 81, Perry / Broders p. 31, Hillier p. 43, Marseille p. 56, La Mer p. 189, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 210.
