Cassandre being one of the most famous figures in French poster design shows the dynamic image of the Nord Express, a stylised rendition showing the speeding locomotive it is one of his great designs from 1927.
The visual language owes much to Cubism, but belongs to the Art Deco in its imagery and the unmistakable modernity of the subject matter. The image communicates the glamour of travel in simple lines.
