Côte Occidentale d'Afrique - Vintage French Airline Poster.
Aeromaritime – Senegals Flying Seaplanes.
Albert Victor Eugene Brenet created the poster in the 1950’s. Brenet was born in 1903 and enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1920. In 1929 he travelled to the West Indies on a trader sailing ship and quickly developed a fascination with daily life onboard. People from foreign lands, ship's crew and exotic posts became subjects. The marvels of Airplanes, trains and scenes from manufacturing workshops became subject matter for his artistic works.
Aeromaritime, a privately owned French Airline was founded in 1935 and opened up air transport to Africa. Aeromaritime used Sikorsky S-43 seaplanes because airfields were mostly non-existent. The first flight to "Pointe noire" in Congo was in May 1937 and stopovers were Dakar, Conakry, Abidjan, Lomé, Cotonou, Douala, Port Gentil and Pointe Noire.
