Provenance: private collection, South of France Brossé (also known as Bzor or Bsor) was a painter, engraver and lithographer from France, representative of the Art Nouveau style. He is mostly known for his “Meeting d’Aviation Nice”, a poster meant to promote an air show to be held in Nice in 1910. This innovative image of a pilot scattering roses from a plane over the coast of Nice gave a glamorous image to the city and was reprinted many times and reproduced on many objects.
