Solon was a self-taught artist who made a brilliant career in Paris as designer and illustrator that began in 1933 when he created his first posters. His international reputation stems particularly from work he performed for airlines such as Farman, Air France, Lufthansa, Imperial Airways, KLM, and others. He also created the very first poster for l'Aéropostale. He also created cartoons for various magazines and the classic poster design for the "Foire de Paris" that was used from 1933 to 1958. In 1987 Solon's wife made an important donation of his work to the Musé Municipal in his hometown of Nevers.
