This is a fine print reproduction of a brightly colored vintage poster-map, created by the brilliant artist/designer Lucian Boucher for Credit Lyonnais, one of France’s largest banks.
The poster depicts the whole of France, featuring primarily France’s myriad architectural splendors, from chateux to cathedrals to medieval fortressed cities. Also depicted are a number of figures dressed in French traditional costume. The waters on either side of the country feature swimmers, sea life of various species, and seagoing vessels of a wide variety.
Born in Chartres, France, he graduated from the Ecole de céramiques de Sèvres, and began his career as cartoonist for the satiric newspaper Le Rire. In the 1920s he worked actively as poster designer for the movies and the advertising industry. He designed a significant number of lithographies inspired by the surrealism style. He is widely known for a series of colorful, detailed Air France poster designs. He is often referred to as "Monsieur Planisphere" (planispheres are flattened representation of planet earth) because of the many illustrated World Maps he created that depicted the global flight routes serviced by the Air France. Lucien Boucher also created wood engravings and drawings in water color.
