    Description

    Air France: Paris (1959). Travel Poster (24" X 39.25") Pierre Baudouin Artwork.
    Artist Pierre Baudouin recreates the vivid nighttime splendor of the City of Lights on this 1959 Air France travel poster, which reuses the artists' illustration from an earlier 1947 advertisement. Potential visitors are treated to an aerial view of the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de l'Étoile, the meeting point of twelve expansive green avenues set off with abundant twinkling white lights, including the famed Champs-Élysées. The silhouette of Air France's newest addition to their fleet, the jetliner Boeing 707-320 Intercontinental, makes its approach in the bottom right against a cobalt sky, red lettering marking the location of the Air France office. Signs of handling for this poster include mild edge wear, some creasing at the top, faint surface scuffs, and small border tears. There is tear in the right border that has a piece of clear tape on the front that wraps around to the verso. A vertical tear at the top that extends into the upper background has archival adhesive on the verso and light touchup on the front. Rolled, Fine+.
