      ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) STRASBOURG - CHAMONIX. 1926.
      42x30 inches, 106 1/2x76 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
      Condition A.
      Here to announce a joint venture between two railroads, Broders uses figures clad in regional ethnic garb to represent the two distinct areas that are now connected by rail. His depiction of the women from the Savoy and Alsace-Lorraine are more stylized than the people he has depicted up until this point, suggesting his shift towards full Art Deco stylization. The geometric forms in the background similarly indicate the development of his style. The characters are very similar to those depicted in a brochure he designed in 1930 (see www.travelbrochuregraphics.com). Broders p. 44A, Perry / Broders p. 46.
