French travel poster for the Venice Simplon Orient Express by noted artist Pierre Fix-Masseau. Signed and dated on upper left corner. Art Deco theme with a woman standing wearing a long fashionable robe, smoking in one of the rooms of the Venice Simplon Orient Express, a train line.

Pierre Fix-Masseau was a leading poster designer in the Art Deco period whose work reveals a fascination with the high speed and new technology which typified the preoccupations of the age. Transport was one of the most popular themes in Art Deco posters and Fix-Masseau’s work is dominated by ships, cars and trains. Where Art Nouveau was characterized by swirls and curves, Art Deco was defined by geometry and straight lines which were ideally suited to this new subject matter. Consequently the leading poster artists of the day - Rex Whistler, Cassandre and Fix-Masseau - would often be commissioned by companies wishing to promote leisure and tourism.

Thin brass / golden frame under glass.
