The poster is marked near the foot: '© CIWLT 1989 - Printed in France' and has the impression of a logo for 'Vinci' set in a V. CIWLT is the holding company for Wagons-Lits. Cassandre (1901-68), whose real name was Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron, is celebrated for his designs for a variety of French brands, including railway and shipping companies and Dubonnet. Here he has taken a characteristically oblique and simple approach to his subject, depicting a glowing railway signal at night.
