Lina Margy Poster

France, c. 1950
31 x 48 in (77 x 121 cm)

This beautiful bold poster advertises disques by the French performer Lina Margy. Her songs were often love songs such as "La chanson du bonheur," the song of happiness. Posters like these, idolizing celebrities with nothing else but their name and a portrait were very common at the time and definitely have some connection to the celebrity culture of today.
