      ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) ANTIBES. Circa 1928.
      42x30 3/4 inches, 106 1/2x78 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
      Condition A / A-: unobtrusive restoration in upper left corner; repaired tear in top margin.
      Being that this image evokes the stylish, languid reminiscences of an F. Scott Fitzgerald story is an uncanny example of art imitating life, imitating art. F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda stayed in this Riviera town in 1926, and it was during his time there that he began writing his novel, Tender is the Night. This poster has never been definitively dated, usually cited as circa 1927, but the stylistic rendering of the main figures is too sophisticated to have been so early. A visual chronology of Broders works shows that he began to master the use of diffident characters with elongated bodies in 1928. This poster also appears with a square version of the PLM logo as well as without a logo entirely. Broders p. 91, Perry / Broders p. 27, Riviera 60, La Mer p. 116, Azur 144.
