Original Vintage Air France Planisphere Poster Map 1959 by Lucien Boucher

Created in 1959 by the artist Lucien Boucher , Air France Map – Blue Pink is one of a series of eight posters commissioned by Air France. These Planispheres were first produced in 1934 and documented Air France’s ever expanding travel routes. Boucher created many of the Planispheres from 1934 to 1962 with increasing sophistication. In some he incorporated constellations and zodiacs. Many featured small local scenes from various countries in order to demonstrate the variety of destinations reached by Air France at that time. These posters were usually distributed to travel agents around the world as promotional items. The fine detail and colorful artwork make these maps highly desirable to collectors. Boucher got his start as a cartoonist for the French humor magazine, Le Rire before moving into product and cinema poster design. He experimented in Surrealism, as well as Art Deco in his early advertising. Boucher’s unique mid-century painting style combines his Art Deco influence and traditional painting to offer a fresh look for advertising. His body of work for Air France is well regarded by collectors as a leader in the mid-century style. Among these artworks are Boucher’s series of Planispheres, which depicted the ever-expanding travel routes of the Air France airline. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
