This is a fine reproduction of a marvelous poster, dating from 1954, that was commissioned by the French government to highlight and promote the legendary Bordeaux wine-producing region of the country.
Printed in France, it is the work of French artist, illustrator and print maker, Remy Hetreau. The fleur de lis and the French Lion are featured in a coat of arms at the top of the map. The title is contained in a ribbon cartouche at the top of the map. Here Hetreau positions his work on what resembles the sort of transportable countryside theater which was popular on the continent in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
A lovely French maiden directs our attention to the map which shows some of the most well-known wines of France and the areas in which the grapes from which the wines are made are grown. A small chateau brightens the background on one side, while implements of everyday life are scattered about the ‘stage’, including a large basket of beautiful grapes, an icon, a wooden mallet, and of course the obligatory wine bottle and goblet.
