LONDON.- Christie’s announced a new annual summer sale of vintage travel posters and luggage celebrating the golden age of tourism, The Art of Travel. With the arrival of the railway in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, artists, writers, and aristocrats flocked to the Côte d’Azur to experience the unique landscape, light, and luxury of the region. The beautiful art deco style posters that were commissioned by the railway companies remind us of the timeless appeal of this glamorous and beautiful region. A selection of the works on offer will be on view at a special exhibition in the JW Marriott Cannes throughout the film festival from 14 – 25 May 2014 and the auction will take place at Christie’s South Kensington on 18 June 2014.

The sale presents a rare opportunity to acquire original vintage posters that promoted travelling in style during the golden age of tourism. Highlights of the auction include spectacular posters by A.M. Cassandre and Roger Broders.

Nicolette Tomkinson, Director, Christie’s: “We are very pleased to announce this new annual sale at Christie‟s South Kensington. „The Art of Travel‟ reflects the glamour and beauty of summer in resorts all across the globe from the French Riviera to Australia‟s Gold Coast. Christie‟s is delighted to partner with JW Marriott Hotel Cannes for this unique exhibition celebrating the rich history of tourism in the Côte d'Azur. The grand lobby of the hotel is the perfect setting to showcase the collection, and we hope that guests will enjoy the Art Deco artwork which beautifully captures the golden age of travel.”

“We are privileged to be able to offer guests and visitors a first glimpse at this impressive collection from such a fitting setting - the striking lobby of our JW Marriott Cannes on the Côte d‟Azur,” said Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President & Global Brand Manager for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts. “The posters depict the glamour and allure associated with travel past and present, and we hope to be able to enrich our guests own travel experiences through this evocative exhibition.”
