This original travel poster from 1935, was designed by Roger de Valerio (1886-1951) and printed as a lithograph by Devambez. The artist was a regular of the Paris printers, and had been producing prints since the beginning of the First World War. He had been working almost exclusively for brands, but it’s thanks to two commissions from Air France - this poster being one of the airline’s first - that he made his mark. He depicts a young woman, drawn as a figurehead in a very art-deco style, carrying the mythical Pegasus - a winged seahorse - the airline’s first logo - as the sun sets in the shadows as if hidden by an eclipse. The two-engine plane drawn by the artist is inspired by the silhouette of the Potez 62, twelve of which were in the company’s fleet by 1935, operating between Paris and Marseille, via Lyon.
