1928 Vichy Golf by Roger Soubie

1928 Vichy Golf by Roger Soubie

Poster by French movie poster artist Roger Soubie, originally created in 1928, highlighted an idyllic afternoon society scene on the fairway of one of Southern France's most prestigious golf courses. In retrospect, of course, there is bitter irony in the painting, since Vichy would later be the seat of the pro-Nazi government of the 1940's and even now is a virtual synonym for traitorous accommodation. This particular print, circa 1935, has added value in that it bears the interlocking letters "PLM" in the upper right corner, signifying the name of the railroad that takes people to the resort. Thus, this rare version of the print is known as the "PLM Poster". 24 x 26" and in mint condition. Print mounted on heavy stock. Bottom reads "Vichy, La Grande Station Thermale" in white against chocolate brown. Soubie's facsimile signature is on the lower right of the image. A parable of the blissful calm in Europe before the storm of WWII.
