Art Deco French Advertising Poster for Soap "NOVAS"

More Views

A charming poster realized in 1941 by Philippe H. Noyer (1917-1985) for the Novas brand of soap. It is interesting to note that NOVAS is a palindrome for SAVON (French for soap). Noyer's stylised images featuring the material luxury and ephemera surrounding early 20th century high-society have an art deco feel. The luminosity in his works comes from a technique he discovered and perfected in which he avoids white in favor of pure colors. Noyer would eventually become a renowned portrait artist of the Paris and London high society.
