||Rene Vincent (1879-1936) worked in an Art Deco style and became a legendry illustrator for his poster designs depicting the first generations of automobiles and racecars, including Bugatti, Peugeot. Vincent also excelled in creating elegantly designed poster advertisements and prints for fashion, beverages, and weekly journals including La Vie Parisienne. He sometimes signed his work with the pseudonym of Rageot.
In this charming lithograph that was realized in the 1920's, a boy and a girl are depicted, playing doctor and patient respectively. The girl is offering the boy a thermometer that he immediately rejects.
