Californie (California) - Air France
DISPLAYING: 11" x 14" Giclée Art Print
Georget's first commercial posters appear in the late 1940s. Hired by the tourist boards, the artist produced posters promoting travel to Spain, designs in which the influence of Picasso and Georges Braque are evident.
During this period, he also worked for Air France, a prestigious employment for graphic artists of the time.
During the 1940- 1960s, his style evolved from the traditional to a more light hearted style. Looking at his work chronologically, one notices his style becoming more graphic with bolder lines and brighter colors. His “Mexico” poster for Air France from 1963 flirts with cubism. The white outline around the character and the palm leaf makes it appear almost as a collage. The result is a bright, attractive image, evoking Mexico's sunny weather, folklore and exoticism.
