I have never delved too far into movie posters but while delving into the art of the Stenberg Brothers I came across Rene Peron and I have to say I’m blown away!

Short bio

René Péron (1904-1972), the dynamic French artist who was highlighted yesterday for his Caine Mutiny masterpiece, established himself and his art deco style in the 1920’s and never looked back as he designed posters for some of the era’s most memorable films (King Kong, 1933), mixing his rich, vibrant colors and elegant portraiture for six decades. Viva el Péron!
