              • Orangina / A la Pulpe d’Orange : Maquette. ca. 1965.
                Mar. 03, 2024

                Orangina / A la Pulpe d’Orange : Maquette. ca. 1965.

                Est: $10,000 - $12,000

                ARTIST: BERNARD VILLEMOT (1911-1989) SIZE: 46 3/4 x 61 3/4 in./119 x 157 cm PRINTER: DESCRIPTION: Bright and zesty, this effervescent beverage is so refreshing that even the sun wants a sip of cold Orangina. Villemot began working for this company in 1953 and created their brilliant advertisements for decades to come. This large maquette uses only a few shapes, but powerfully conveys the brand’s message. “Villemot came up with the idea of the famous zest; that is to say the motif of the peel cut with a knife, which winds gracefully around itself. It is quite physically beautiful and remains central to the brand’s look to this day... Rapidly, we came to comprehend the exceptional value of the zest design. With its creation, Villemot had established the Orangina color code: the blue background, the orange drawings and the yellow product. We hadn’t set out to design an emblem, much less a logo, but we realized that we had happened upon something powerful” (Bon Salle, p. 188). (Modern; Food/Drink)

                TAI. 1953.

                Est: $1,200 - $1,500

                ARTIST: BERNARD VILLEMOT (1911-1989) SIZE: 27 5/8 x 39 1/8 in./70.2 x 99.3 cm PRINTER: Éditions le Carrousel, Paris DESCRIPTION: Villemot illustrates the moment French colonial outposts became exotic tourist destinations. This incredible, rare design for TAI—the Compagnie de Transport Aeriens Intercontinentaux—gives the illusion of a swirling globe full of travel possibilities. TAI began as a charter airline in June 1946 in association with the Messageries Maritime Shipping Company, with its first flights departing in July of that year. The enterprise merged with the Union de Transports Aériens in 1963. The Douglas DC-6 was one of the first airplanes to fly a regularly scheduled around-the-world route, and its list of destinations at left is enough alone to inspire adventure, from Bangkok to Casablanca to Saigon and beyond.

                Air France / Afrique du Nord. 1946.

                Est: $1,400 - $1,700

                ARTIST: BERNARD VILLEMOT (1911-1989) SIZE: 24 1/8 x 39 in./61.2 x 99 cm PRINTER: Hubert Baille, Paris DESCRIPTION: Villemot designed posters for Air France interspersedly from 1946 through the 1970s; he was hired specifically for his "poetic, symbolic imagination [that translated] into suggestive forms and colors whatever inspiration he could draw from words as general as India, North Africa, Paris, etc." (Bon Salle, p. 115). For North Africa, he presents us with a bird's-eye view of the typical white walls, stucco roofs, and domes one might find in Morocco. This is the French language version. (Modern; Aviation; Travel)

              • Bernard Villemot, French (1911-1989), Study for Orangina Poster, gouache on paper
                Feb. 10, 2024

                Bernard Villemot, French (1911-1989), Study for Orangina Poster, gouache on paper

                Est: $4,000 - $6,000

                Bernard Villemot French, (1911-1989) Study for Orangina Poster gouache on paper This brightly colored optimistic study for an Orangina poster was created by Bernard Villemot, an iconic French graphic artist who used bold color, elegant design and simple forms to promote not only Orangina but also the Red Cross, Perrier, Bally Shoe, Air France, Cinzano Blanc, Gauloises, Negrita Le rhum, et al. This particular study served as the basis for advertisements (and a lithograph series of 30) promoting this lightly carbonated refreshing drink that was released in an orange-sized and shaped bottle with a texture (made in glass) that mimicked the pebbly peel of the citrus fruit itself. The beverage was developed by the Spanish chemist Agustin Trigo Miralles in Algeria in the 1930s but made its way into France in the 1950s and 60s when Villemot made many famous posters of it for the company. His work here focuses on a beach scene: we see a cross section of two tanned bathers sitting cross-legged and their swimwear designs that recall an abstract linear spiral of an orange that has been peeled in one piece—as well as the classic original 250ml bottle of Orangina in the right foreground. A sunny and wonderful mid-century advertising design by a French poster master. Around the time of this project, Villemot enjoyed a solo show at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, and he has since become the subject of three books. Signed, framed.

                Feb. 06, 2024

                Original Vintage Bernard Villemot Poster Ducretet Thomson Skier 1964 Woman

                Est: $1,200 - $1,800

                This is an extremely rare poster by Bernard Villemot. It was created in 1964 to promote the clarity of the Thomson Ducretet television set, and highlights the broad range of Villemot's extensive talents. A highly stylized and detailed image of a skier projects out of the TV, onto an elegant and loosely drawn lounging woman. The loose linework on the reclining lady helps to contrast with the extremely clear image of the television, which we are told highlights the "purity of lines". Eugene Ducretet (1844 - 1915) founded his eponymous company in 1864 as an inventor and scientist in the very early years of radio development. Ducretet sold radios, phonographs, and telegraphs and was sold to Thomson in 1931. Thomson is a massive retailer of electronic consumer goods such as televisions, radios, and transmitters to this day. Bernard Villemot (1911-1989) was one of the foremost poster artists in the 1960's and 1970's, known for his innovative design and use of color. Born into a bourgeoisie family, his artistic pursuit was encouraged by his father, who was a well-known cartoonist. Villemot received training at the famous L'Ecole Paul, a school for poster artists founded and taught by famed poster artist Paul Colin. To many, he represents the end of the age when most of the poster designers are trained artists. As the world began to shift in the 1960s towards ad agencies and graphic design implemented by art departments, Villemot stood firm in his belief that the only way to advertise effectively "was to treat a poster as though it were a painting". His distinctive style was commissioned by many prominent advertisers, most notably Orangina, Perrier, and Bally.

                Est: $3,000 - $4,000

                The poster is promoting the use of Christofle's products as in Wedding Registry items. Christofle is a manufacturer of fine silver flatware and home accessories based in France. It was founded in 1830, when jeweler Charles Christofle assumed management of a jewelry workshop belonging to his wife's family. Among Christofle's product lines are silver picture frames, crystal vases and glassware, porcelain dinnerware, and silver jewelry and holloware. Artists and designers such as the Parisian silversmith Antoine Perrin, Man Ray, Jean Cocteau, Gio Ponti, Andree Putman, Martin Szekely, Ito Morabito (Ora-Ïto), Xiao Hui Wang and Richard Hutten are among those whose creations have been made by Christofle.

                Original Bernard Villemot Vintage French Poster 1976 for Contrex Water

                Est: $700 - $1,000

                Contrex is a circa 1970 French advertisement for Contrex Mineral Water by Bernard Villemot (1909-1989). The advertisement continues Villemot's signature use of nude beauties in his advertising artwork. The image features a nude woman happily wrapped around a bottle of Contrex in a bedroom. Contrex mineral water has diuretic properties and was advertised towards women as a way to keep in shape. The text reads "Trust Contrex with a reasonable meal" and implies that the drink is great pairing with any meal.
