      ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) TUNIS. 1920.
      42 3/4x30 1/4 inches, 108 1/2x77 cm. Daude Frères, Paris.
      Condition A.
      It is interesting to note that Broders' first travel posters were for destinations outside of France. Stylistically these early images were very similar to posters designed by other renowned travel poster artists such as E. Paul Champseix, Constant Duval, Julien Lacaze and Charles Hallo (Alo). Yet Broders' early posters show a commanding use of depth of field, each having a pronounced foreground and background, set off from each other by strongly contrasting colors and shades of light. Broders p. 110, Perry / Broders p. 88, Algerie p. 195, Bon Voyage p. 42, Chemins de Fer 171, not in Orientalist.
