Roger Bezombes (1913-1994) better known for his sculptures, paintings and other media created this new idea. Heavily influenced by surrealism and artist such as Braque he created images of gastronomy, desert islands, aviation, freedom, the orient, the planet. They were presented to Air France.
From 1974 the ''Artistic'' displays created for Air France was controlled by a ''selection committee'', This committee frowned on these posters done by Bezombes as being ''too modern'' ''too strange'' and were generally not following the Air France direction/brand.
