Ad-Art by Raymond Savignac.


All that I know about Raymond Savignac I've only just read in this five year old Obituary from the New York Times. He's one of many great illustrators and designers who's work I've seen for years, but I never took the time to find out who's work it was. It's thanks to my favorite blog, Grain Edit, for posting an image of Savignac's work that I finally found out more about this highly celebrated poster artist and found more of his work online.

As usual I'm the last one to "discover" this artist only to find that all their posters command extremely high prices, even modern reproductions, and books about the artist are out of print and highly collectible too. Oh well. I'll settle for perusing the archives at the Savignac Store.

An assortment of Savignac posters follows, enjoy…

Note: Most of the images can be viewed larger if you click on them.


This image is funny, but sort of gross.

This must be a self portrait.




The man in this image looks a little uncomfortable with his dancing partners state of undress.


Spaghetti cannibal?

I love this painting. France doesn't really lend itself to anthropomorphism, but Savignac pulls it off.



He worked in a few very different styles over the years, and sometimes, like in the above image, he brought the two together. The figure is so primitive and childlike, but the fridge and all the items inside are so expertly rendered.
