Mixing business with pleasure, French poster artist Paul Colin (1892 – 1985) and jazz entertainer Josephine Baker became wildly successful. Baker’s lover and friend, Colin designed the magnificent Art Deco poster for Baker’s La Revue Nègre, which propelled them both to fame. Colin was hired by the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées to design 1,900 posters and countless stages sets, mostly for Baker. Colin, whose posters encompassed numerous themes from the performing arts, also illustrated Baker’s memoirs, published in 1927.
