Beautiful poster made for the SNCF, by Foujita in 1958.
Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita 🇫🇷/🇯🇵 (1886-1968) "the most Japanese of the painters of Paris". Bowl cut and round glasses on his nose, he was one of the great actors of the Roaring Twenties (early 1920s), adored for his exoticism and originality.
Foujita's success was due to his original and new style, which placed him on the border between East and West, in a register in which he excelled. His subjects, preferably Western, are drawn with sobriety and meticulousness on ivory backgrounds of his own making, which allow him to deposit a fine and vigorous black line and transparent and light oil colors.
