Through the 1920s, the railroads were the primary producer of travel posters, which were important in promoting ticket sales. The five major railways radiating from Paris advertised extensively and sought to brand their lines through the use of devices such as the distinctive "window frame" format used in the poster seen here.

Working in a realistic style, Constant-Duval was one of the most prolific and skilled French travel poster artists of the 1920s. His famous series of images for the Paris-Orleans and Chemins de Fer de L'Etat rail lines are exquisitely printed and depict views of grand country estates and regal chateaux that offered a refuge from city life. A major attraction in a historic town, the castle at Saumur was built in the 10th century as a stronghold against Norman raids and later developed into a chateau in the Loire region.
