Excellent condition original exhibition poster for the International flower show in Paris, France. Contemporary stylized art design by the notable artist Bernard Villemot.
Bernard Villemot (1911-1989) is regarded as one of the finest post-war French graphic designers. Greatly influenced by the Bauhaus, he worked with clean lines, abstract and large blocks of color to evoke the modern woman, a woman with flair and sensuality. Villemot, one of the leading graphic designers in France during the post-war period, is regarded as one of France's most talented twentieth century poster artists. He was the subject of retrospective exhibitions both at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris between 1980 and 2000. Belonging in the movement that moved towards an international graphic style after the Bauhaus and de Stijl, Villemot's advertising clients included Air France, Perrier, Orangina and Bergasol. His work is characterized by vivid colors, thin outlines and abstracted and organic forms.
