"A railroad poster to lure Parisians to the seaside resort of Cabourg, a mere 5 hours away. A tempting blonde bather is being pursued by lustful swimmers. The message is clear. Cabourg's a lot fun!"(Rennert-XVI 328)

 

"Privat Livemont was a virtuoso poster lithographer, always drawing the image on the stone himself. Woman was the subject of his work, almost to the exclusion of everything else. He created a type to whom he remained faithful, with heavy eyelids, heart-shaped mouth, and long decorative hair strewn with soft flowers." (Belle Epoque, p.60)
