Original color lithographic poster, printed by Paul Martial, Paris, France 1928. Condition: Very Good (B) Light foxing in margins, some tears and creasing especially in bottom 1/4 of poster, backed on linen.

The French graphic artist, Francis Bernard demonstrates his command of Art Deco design in this original 1928 poster for Ciboure. Situated on the Cote Basque between the bay of Saint Jean de Luz and the Pyrennes, this poster promotes a lifestyle of comfort and leisure, and activities associated with both the water and the mountains. It is effective both as an enticing travel poster for this picturesque fishing town and as a real estate promotion for the Extension de Ciboure, a fashionable housing development.

This is an excellent example of Bernard's mastery of the use of the diagonal line in his composition and the integration of modern, art deco typefaces into the design.
Reference: Voyage p.49, Pyrenees p.128, La Mer p.121
