Additional Information: Air France: Mediterranean, the 1980 French airplane airline aviation travel poster promoting travel to the Mediterranean Sea and featuring art of a barracuda looking fish created by Roger Bezombes. From 1974 the “Artistic” displays created for Air France was controlled by a “selection committee”, This committee frowned on these posters done by Bezombes as being “too modern” “too strange” and were generally not following the Air France direction/brand. The President of AF, Pierre Giraudet, however saw this project, appreciated it and asked Gerard Orizet to take this project on board. This however took 7 years of cajoling, persuading before it came to fruition in 1980. They were officially unveiled in 1981 at the Beaubourg museum in Paris. Printer: Mourlot Imp. Paris. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is professional acid-free conservation mounted, linen backed, and in very good condition.
