It was a style that represented luxury, glamour, and rich exuberance.
Lasting from the 1910s until the the early 1930s, the age of Art Deco was popular across Europe after originating in France.
Now, a new exhibition in London reveals some of the era’s most iconic advertising posters.
One from 1910 displays an early version of the world famous Michelin Man – the mascot of the French tyre firm of the same name.
Another promotes the motoring prowess of France’s premier car firm Renault, in its 1920s heyday.
Other posters in the exhibition promote the delights of places including Australia, Nice, and Swiss skiing resorts.
The exhibition – held in collaboration with London-based gallery AntikBar, opens on Saturday at luxury hotel 45 Park Lane.
Kirill Kalinin, founder of AntikBar, said: ‘We’re delighted to be exhibiting these exceptional, rare vintage posters in such an iconic Art Deco-inspired hotel. The focus on travel, leisure and luxury are a beautiful combination for such a design-led space.’
