Very beautiful poster of Léon Fauret ( 1863 - 1955 ) on the voluntary commitment in the colonial troops.
The propaganda posters want to encourage voluntary enlistment and, to do this, present the military institution in its best light.
The commitment in the colonial troops is valued with the use of warm colors but also the diversity of the represented countries, from Africa to Asia, evoke the adventure and the exoticism. The soldiers contrast with the classic image of the disciplined and authoritarian soldier. They display a sympathetic posture and decorations that promise the young recruit a successful career.
