Pierre Commarmond
Pierre Commarmond

Pierre Commarmond was a French landscape painter and poster artist, most recognized for his delightful railroad travel posters created in the 1920s and 30s.

I particulary enjoy posters of this kind; their flat colors and strong design elements remind me of color woodcuts.

I believe many of the original paintings for these were done in gouache.
