Additional Information: Fix-Masseau's career as an artist began in the 1930s and he maintained his signature deco style throughout its duration. This elegant poster advertises the VSOE train line with the spot light on the availability of fine dining. The 1920s and 1930s were the heyday of the legendary train - elaborate meals, decadent company and fine wines characterised this era of rail travel. Royalty, celebrities, courtesans and spies intermingled as they travelled in opulence throughout Europe Antique posters are 'pictures of persuasion,' as we might call them, offer a wealth of art, history, design, and popular culture for us to understand. The poster is a familiar part of our world, and we intuitively understand its role as propaganda, promotion, announcement, or advertisement."
