This artist is known mainly for a series of absorbing, Air France, world-map posters, signalling a global theatre. Lucien Boucher launched his design career attuned to the commercial promise of Surrealism.

Born in Chartre, he studied at the École de Céramique de Sèvres. He made his debut at the Salon d'Automne in 1921, becoming a member in 1923; he also exhibited at the Salon de l'Araignée from 1924-1930. As well as lithographs, Boucher also made wood engravings, and drawings in watercolour and gouache. Lucien Boucher's witty and charming colour lithographs.
