POSTER OF THE MONTH - January 2020

vintage French travel poster La Cote Basque 1957
Bernard Villemot
38 3/4" x 24"
Though not specifically about Spring, this is a graphic that seems almost to personify the season. In showing off the range of sports and recreational activities to be enjoyed along France's Southern Atlantic shore, it gathers up the tests of skill in a configuration paying homage to more simple gratifications.
The eighteenth hole has been fashioned as a cylindrical (and horse friendly!) mint green valley, the graceful trees of its edges accentuating a drop toward the beach and sea. Little inlets heading toward Spain invite us to meander at will, something easier to do on a fresh Spring day than when the Southern sun is really cooking.
