    Description

    French Travel Poster (1920). Poster (30.5" X 45.5"). "Emprunt de la Paix. Souscrivez à la Banque Industrielle de Chine" (Peace Loan. Subscribe to the Industrial Bank of China).
    An exotic harbor scene fills this stone litho French "subscription" poster for a "Peace Loan" that could be subscribed to at the Industrial Bank of China, which had its international headquarters in Paris. By 1922, the Ambassador of France, M. Philippe Berthelot, was forced to accept a ten year retirement due to his brother's actions at the bank (he was a director), which led to the bank shuttering its doors. The poster has been mounted on linen. There was fold wear, chips in the top horizontal fold, and three tears in the top border that have all been touched up. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
