Linen backed original poster created by the city of Rimini to promote the beauty of their sunny beaches, this lovely woman in a straw hat holds a large yellow beach ball to mimic the sun. The soft blue background conveys the peaceful nature of the beach with Rimini written in the clouds in the stream of the airplane. This is one of the last posters created by Rene Gruau. With his stunning figures, his arresting use of color and dramatic element of line, Rene Gruau developed his distinctive "New Look" in the 1940s which greatly influenced fashion, theatre, art and commercial design. He worked for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Femina, Marie-Claire, etc. Internationally, Gruau's artwork is celebrated for its masterful line and enduring style. Today Gruau's works are collected and exhibited in the finest art institutions, including the Louvre in Paris. This poster, for the Italian seaside resort of Rimini, was the last produced by the master in his lifetime. This is an Original European Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.
