CAPTION PRINTED BELOW PICTURE: 'Les Vignobles de France - Vins d'Alsace'

Rémy Hétreau (1913-2001) was French painter, graphic artist, printmaker, illustrator and designer. He was commissioned in the 1950s by the Comité National de Propagande en Faveur du Vin, a French government agency tasked with promoting the nation's wines and tourism to the wine growing regions, to create a series of illustrated maps entitled "Les Vignobles de France". There were supposedly eleven of these: Région Est, Normandie, Champagne, Bordeaux, Rhône, Bourgogne, Provence, Alsace, Loire, Roussillon & what was then the French colony of Algeria. However, Provence & Roussillon were combined into a single map, and we have never seen examples of the maps for Région Est or Normandie - neither of which regions are particularly noted for their wine. His highly decorative, exuberant maps display a joyful mid-century aesthetic; they have become much sought after. 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 maps. The locations of the main white and red wine producing appellations are shown with grape bunch icons of the appropriate colour
