Paul Colin was a talented painter, decorator and print-maker but is best known for his colour posters, notably 'La Revue Negre' of 1925 and others featuring the American dancer Josephine Baker with whom he famously had a passionate affair; his posters are still reprinted in great numbers but his original prints are very scarce
Also called Style Moderne, Art Deco is a movement in the decorative arts and architecture that originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in western Europe and the United States during the 1930s. Its name was derived from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, held in Paris in 1925, where the style was first exhibited. Art Deco design represented modernism turned into fashion. Its products included both individually crafted luxury items and mass-produced wares, but, in either case, the intention was to create a sleek and antitraditional elegance that symbolized wealth and sophistication.
All posters on the Festivities, Festivals, Contest, Meeting, Show, in Europe and in the world. the beauty through the elegance and the expression of the illustrators on this generous topic. the quality of the impressions make these posters of remarkable objects of collections.
