ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) VICHY - COMITÉ DES FÊTES. Circa 1928.
42x31 inches, 107x79 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
Condition B+: expertly restored losses in lower corners affecting text; abrasions and minor restoration in image.
One of Broders' most evocative posters, visually encapsulating the decadence and luxury of the Jazz Era. "Beyond the elegance of the characters and the skill of the composition is the harmony of the colors - - the deep black that surrounds the image, the blue in the center which emphasizes the bright lanterns and costumes . . . A virtuoso colorist, Broders brings to each of his posters an atmosphere with a strong visual impact" (Art Deco p. 18). This poster has historically been dated circa 1926, but the stylization of the main characters is more in line with the artist's work circa 1928. Art Deco p. 19, Broders p. 55, Perry / Broders p. 55, Hillier p. 13. Hillion p. 69, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 211.
