Ecosse / Par les Trains de Luxe LMS. 1928.
One of three posters which Cassandre created for LMS travel to Scotland, this image shows a departure from his very geometric, linear style toward a more ethereal, Cubist expression. Specifically, the dividing of objects into areas of light and dark was a technique used prominently by Braque around this time. And yet, he does not delve fully into Cubism, but retains much of his harsh lines mixed with minimalistic naturalism. In the end, these elements all work together to convey the requisite haunting mystery of the Scottish castles.
