INV. #:
Monte Carlo Beach 'Le Paradis Retrouve'
Grade A. Excellent condition. On the beach of Monte Carlo, Adam and Eve have re-discovered their lost Paradise. Eve hasn't bitten the apple yet, so maybe the happy couple will stick around a bit longer to jet ski alongside their serpent-friend.
The poster has been archivally mounted on linen, and it's in marvelous condition. It is one of the best posters we have ever seen! -for every reason, the colors, the quality of the printing, the condition, and of course, the fabulous scene depicted!
SEM designed an important series of war-time caricatures and three good posters. He was a member of the committee of the Salon of the Humorists and later became an officer in the Legion of Honor. His best posters were done for the Third National Loan Campaign in 1917.
