Embracing an Icon

The Posters of Bernard Villemot

Bernard Villemot, the last great commercial/poster artist, lived in Paris his entire life (no surprise), drew inspiration from Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, Raoul Dufy, and other fine artists of his time (early-mid twentieth century), and left an immeasurable mark on modern advertising and graphic art. This splendid homage reproduces all of the artist’s 565 commercial designs for film, tourism, sports competitions, the beauty and cosmetics industries, etc., in addition to the iconic work he did for Bally, Orangina, and Perrier.
