he was the master of french travel posters, promoting early tourist destinations especially the beaches at the côte d’azur and the skiiing resorts in the french alps. ROGER BRODERS, 1883 – 1953, was a french illustrator who created a very distinctive graphic style in his work – overall about 100 posters – with simple lines and bold, flat areas of color. influenced by the CUBISTS, KANDINSKY, SEVERINI and DELAUNAY he designed masterful settings in his always evocative compositions. his motives ranged from the regions of alsace lorraine, vichy + jura down the rhone river into bourgogne and the french alps ( some of his most famous tourism posters were mountain and ski scenes in and around chamonix and mont blanc ), leading to the south of france, the colorful locations of marseilles, hyeres, sainte maxim, grasse, antibes, villefranche, monte carlo and menton. even today his work is still popular and lithographs of his posters are being sold.
ROGER BRODERS fully dedicated himself to poster art from 1920 to 1932 – interesting is the development of similar background-styles in animation around the same time, especially in the silly symphonies after the introduction of color in disney films in 1932. and – look at MARY BLAIR’S designs, she was a big fan of swiss graphic design and knew for sure BRODERS art as well. it’s a small world…
