AIR FRANCE – FRENCH RIVIERA (STRAW HAT), 1963. Original Vintage French Travel Poster (24 x 39” / 79 x 128 cm) designed and illustrated by Italian fashion illustration artist Rene Gruau (1909-2004); the artist commonly signed his work as “Gruau”. This poster prominently features a sun-tanned woman with shoulder-length black hair wearing a strikingly yellow straw hat; while holding a single flower like a cigarette up to her red lips under a crystal clear blue sky. This poster conveys the fun and fashion of the French Riviera in an Audrey Hepburn style of beauty.
This poster is originally rolled and in very fine C9 condition. The only flaw on this poster is some very minor tearing that’s occurred along lower right margin due to improper removal of staples. Otherwise there is only slight wrinkling from rolling the poster towards the top above “Air France.” Please click on image to zoom-in and review this beautiful poster for yourself.
