Description: ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) MONTE - CARLO. Circa 1930.
39 1/2x24 1/2 inches, 100 1/4x62 1/4 cm. Monegasque, Monte-Carlo.
Condition A / A-: repaired tears in margins; abrasions in image.
The Monte-Carlo Country Club, with twenty-one tennis courts overlooking the Mediterranean, opened in 1928 with a momentous inauguration attended by members of European royal families. Broders emphasizes the glamorous members of the club and its exquisite setting to create one of his best posters. The elegant couple is depicted in Broders' signature manner, using only flat planes of color. He creates exceptional depth-of-field via the different levels of tennis courts, spectators in the grandstands and the beaches in the distance. His handling of shadows and the bright Riviera sun is masterful and is crowned by the slivers of yellow sunlight which silhouette some of the figures. "An outstanding poster which combines elegance with the grandeur of the landscape" (Azur p. 249). Broders p. 97, Perry / Broders p. 39, Tennis p. 37, Riviera 222, Voyage 39, Azur 311, Art Deco p. 17, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 211, Zagrodzki 242.
