Rare and Important French Art Deco Poster of Rena May Et Gerardy

$9,975.00

The dancing couple of Rena May & Gerardy were popular in their native France in the 1930's. This was during the height of popularity of ballroom dancing as well as the many movies featuring couples dancing such as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. When the Nazi movement threatened liberties in Europe the couple emigrated to Australia where they lived the remainder of their lives. This alluring image by the artist Harford uses the influence of the Art Deco style and combines it with the subtlety of color to show various shades of beiges as well as a hint of burgundy highlighting Rena May's gown and the typography. This is a rare, original vintage poster: It is not a reproduction. This poster is acid-free conservation mounted, linen backed and in excellent condition. Comes in a black ebonized wood gallery frame. Comes with original papers and documents attached. Included with the piece are original, unpublished photos of Rena May and Gerardy.
