Printed in 1945, the Cognac Rouyer poster was designed after France was liberated from the Nazis but before the war was over. The style of this piece is incredibly indicative of its time—regal, strong, and stoic. The statuesque angel is reminiscent of what one would have seen in the Art Deco period of the 1920’s and 1930’s, while the spangled blue background and red lettering was purposefully used to market towards the American G.I.s who would have still be stationed in France. For a very short period of time directly after World War II, posters used pride and victory as a marketing and morale tool, the Cognac Rouyer being one of the best of them.
