Vintage poster by Pierre Fix Masseau for the restoration of the mythic "Orient-Express" in 1981.

Pierre Fix-Masseau (1905-1994) is a French poster artist, son of the sculptor Pierre-Félix Fix-Masseau (1869-1937).
He studied at Boulle school and Arts-Décoratifs in Paris. In 1928, he meets the poster artist Cassandre who invites him to work in his studio in Versailles. He learns in a few months the rigor, the graphic precision and the composition of a poster.
He has created, among other things, luxury labels and packaging, posters for the ferryboat, the railway and several advertisements for Shell, Air France, Philips, Seita, Bic and the National Lottery.

The Orient-Express is a luxury train created by the International Company of Sleeping Cars which, since 1883, provides the link between Paris, Vienna and Venice, from 1919, and Constantinople, serving several capitals of European nations.
