AIR FRANCE – NEAR EAST, 1962. Original Vintage French Travel Poster (24 x 39” / 79 x 128 cm) designed and illustrated by well-known artist Guy Georget (1911-1991); printed in France using traditional lithography. Georget was hired by the tourist boards during the Golden Age of Travel to illustrate bright and attractive posters to tempt people to visit the new countries that Air France was flying to. His first commercial posters appeared in the late 1940s and has a very unique and attractive style of illustration. This poster features a male figure sitting on a prayer rug and draped in colorful traditional robes; in the background there is a golden mosque with minarets and an oil rig.
This poster is originally rolled and in good C8 condition with only a couple of minor conditional issues: 1 pin hole in all 4 corners; small 2″ vertical tear on middle of bottom margin through the ‘e’ in “east”; very small 1″ vertical tear on middle of top margin above the ‘N’ in “FRANCE”.
