About this artwork

A. M. Cassandre's (1901–1968) "Normandie" is one of his most memorable poster designs. Often described as 'floating palaces', these ocean liners were the epitome of luxury travel during the 1920s and 1930s. This poster, commissioned in 1935, was designed by the French-Ukrainian graphic designer A. M. Cassandre to celebrate the launch of this ocean liner's service with the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique.Cassandre, a pro at manipulating scale and dynamic composition, highlights the enormity of the biggest superliner built during that period. He employs an extreme, geometric perspective from below, a smart technique that draws the viewer's attention, compelling them to recognise the grandeur of the ship's massive bow towering above the water. The poster, with its classy, streamlined, and simplified pictorial representation, is a fine example of French Art Deco design. It even features a fluttering French flag at the peak of the ship. If you look carefully, you will notice a tiny flock of seagulls next to gentle crashing waves, strategically placed above Cassandre's expertly created typefaces promoting the ship's significant transatlantic route.

About the artist

A.M Cassandre, an exceptional French artist, painter, and designer, was born in 1901 and died in 1968. He was prominent during the Art Deco era, an elegant style of decorative art, design, and architecture that emerged as a Modernist response to Art Nouveau. This style is characterised by the utilization of angular, symmetrical geometric forms. Originally from Kharkov, Ukraine, Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron (1901–1968) worked as a commercial poster artist and typeface designer. After studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, he joined Lucien Simon’s independent studio and later the Académie Julian. In 1922, Mouron relocated to Paris and adopted the pseudonym 'Cassandre' for his advertising designs, achieving instant fame with his early work, which was characterised by his distinct synthetic style. His fame primarily stems from his well known Dubonnet wine posters in 1932. He gained attention through his innovative use of typefaces, several of which he patented, such as Bifur (1929), Acier (1930), Acier noir (1936), and Cassandre (1968). By bridging the gap between fine art and commercial art, he became one of the most influential graphic designers in history.
