An Original 1984 Bernard Villemot poster, advertising travel to the Bourgogne region of France.

Please see the other travel posters we've listed. An original Poster, about 30 years old.

Bernard Villemot was a French graphic artist known primarily for his iconic advertising images for Orangina, Bally shoes, Perrier, and Air France. He was known for a sharp artistic vision that was influenced by photography, and for his ability to distill an advertising message to a memorable image with simple, elegant lines and bold colors. From 1932–1934, he studied in Paris with artist Paul Colin, who was considered a master of Art Deco. (See our other items for some of Colin's original ads!) From 1945–1946, Villemot prepared posters for the Red Cross. In the late 1940s, he also began a famous series of travel posters for Air France that would continue for decades. In 1949, Villemot's works were exhibited with those of his contemporary poster artist Raymond Savignac at the Gallery of Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1953, Villemot began designing logos and posters for the new soft drink Orangina, and over time these works would become some of his best known. In 1963, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris held an exhibition of his works. By the end of his life in 1989, he was known as one of the last great poster artists, and many collectors and critics consider him to be the "painter-laureate of modern commercial art." Since his death in 1989, his memorable images have been increasingly sought after by collectors. At least two books have been published that survey his art: "Les affiches de Villemot," by Jean-Francois Bazin (1985), and "Villemot: l’affiche de A à Z," by Guillaume Villemot (2005).
