Brasserie Lengrand Frog 1926 French Alcohol Advertising Poster, Paul Nefri

A favourite from our new additions and one of the most iconic French beverage posters, the charming Brasserie Lengrand Frog created in 1926.

The brewery Lengrande was located in Camblain-Châtelain in the department of Pas-de-Calais in the region of Hauts de France. This poster, created almost 100 years ago, advertises the Brasserie known for its fine wines, liqueurs, and especially its beer. We adore Paul Nefri's design of The Lendgrand frog enjoying a glass of frothy beer... enjoying it a little too much in fact as he appears to be losing his balance!

France has a long and rich history in poster design that dates back to the mid-19th century.... CLICK TO READ MORE
One of the most influential figures in the development of vintage posters was the French poster artist Jules Chéret. Around 1866, Chéret is credited with producing the first colour lithograph posters, using a technique he refined from the black and white process first invented by German actor and playwright Alois Senefelder in 1798. Cheret's three stone lithographic process allowed artists to achieve every colour in the rainbow using just three stones - usually red, yellow and blue - printed in careful registration.

The Parisian artists, headed by Cheret and including masters Steinlen, Willette, Grasset, Bonnard, Forain and, last but certainly not least, Toulouse-Lautrec's vibrant and eye-catching designs influenced, in part, by Japanese Woodcuts brought a new level of visual appeal to the streets of Paris and, in turn, established the poster as an art form.

The Belle Époque (Beautiful Era), a period of peace and frivolity in France from the late 19th to the early 20th century (1870-1914), played a significant role in the continued advancement of poster design. This era coincided with economic growth and the rise of a new middle class with disposable income and leisure time. It was during this time that the poster craze took hold in France, with posters being used for advertising various products, events, and entertainment.

Over the decades that followed from these auspicious beginnings French poster design continued to flourish and designers from around the world followed suit in experimenting with poster design for advertisements for cultural events, travel, film, food and drink and more.

This vintage poster has been professionally linen-backed and is sized 29 1/2 x 41 inches and will be sent rolled (unframed).
