Royat (Auvergne) Poster
29 x 41 in (74 x 104 cm)
Vintage French travel poster of Royat, a spa town famous for its Roman bath houses. Illustrated on the poster is a scene of the town from above, the setting sun's orange rays hitting the church's stone bricks gloriously. The artist behind this poster, George Dorival, was born in Paris and studied at the Ecole Natrionale Superieure de Arts Decoratifs. He went on to design travel posters for the next twenty years.
