Sale 2266 Lot 5
ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) LA ROUTE DES ALPES. Circa 1920.
42 1/4x30 3/4 inches, 107x78 cm. Cornille & Serre, Paris.
Condition A: repaired tear in top margin; crease through bottom left corner.
Again, Broders masterfully employs the use of depth of field, with the vegetation and people in the foreground and the route from Nice to Geneva in the background. His depiction of the people taking the tour of the Alps by motor coach is straight forward and illustrative, bearing none of the Art Deco stylization that would appear in his work later in the decade. Broders p. 66, Perry / Broders p. 57, Hillion p. 252.
