Polka Dot Fun

Other than the cute polka dot dress, this poster by French artist Bernard Villemot for Bally shoes has nothing to do with fifties fashion. Isn't it FUN though?

See how cleverly we are told this is an advertisement for both men's and women's shoes.

Bernard Villemot Poster for Bally Shoes

If we were a blog about art, we would tell you that Villemot has been referred to as "the finest French artist in 50 years." He won the prestigious Martini Gold Medal in 1957. Upon his death in 1989, he was said to be the last great poster painter.
