The Balearic Islands poster

The Balearic Islands

Planning your next superyacht charter or pondering where to sail your boat this summer? Depicting nearly a century of the Mediterranean’s holiday delights, these vintage posters from Christie’s forthcoming Posters sale (4 June 2015) may just convince you to book a berth in Monaco, Cannes or Nice.

The Balearic Islands

Drawn by Georges Taboureau under the pseudonym Sandy Hook in 1934, this lithograph was printed in Paris for French shipping firm Compagnie de Navigation Mixte. Founded in Marseille in 1850, the company launched their first steam propeller in 1852 and continued to carry both passengers and cargo between the Mediterranean and North Africa until 1981.

Les Iles Baleares (1934) by Sandy Hook, sold with two other travel posters.

Estimate £1,000-£1,500, place bid here
