French wine regions poster maps by Rémy Hétreau (1954)

We're very excited to offer a series of exuberant 1950s poster maps "Les Vignobles de France" - the wine regions of France - by the graphic artist and painter Rémy Hétreau. He was commissioned by the Comité National de Propagande en Faveur du Vin, a French government agency tasked with promoting the nation's wines and wine tourism. His highly decorative works display a joyful mid-century aesthetic; art critic René Barjavel said of him "In the world around him, it is always springtime. He has a blossoming tree in his heart"; a comment evident in these wonderful posters. View them all here.

If you have any questions, please ask - we're always happy to help. Call us on +44-(0)208-960-3476 or email
