Share this:

Roger Broders was born in Paris in 1883. A brilliant illustrator he is best known for his travel posters, many of them commissioned by the French railway company Paris, Lyon, Mediteranée (PLM). From 1922 to 1932 he dedicated himself to poster art, although producing fewer than 100 posters in that time.

In 1925 he changed the style of his work and became to be heavily influenced by the Art Deco movement and many of his posters at this time were cre­ated under the influ­ence of the Art Deco style. Most of his really great work appeared after 1928 and the mag­nif­i­cent travel posters he created set him apart from other artists of the time.
