Gruau achieved international fame through his work for the great Paris fashion houses and the leading fashion magazines in the 1940s and 50s. This swirling, dynamic design was a rare and possibly unique excursion into movie posters. His signature appears in the red on the far right. La Dolce Vita, starring Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg, won the Golden Palm at Cannes, as the poster says, and sealed the international reputation of director federico Fellini. This example, issued by Gaumont, promoted the film in France.
