Georges Mathieu (1921-2012) was a French painter and pioneer of lyrical abstraction. His works imply a lush and sumptuous use of colour. In 1966, he was commissioned by Air France to design travel posters in which he used symbols to represent the uniqueness of the countries. Optical illusions on the posters were a result of combining different printing techniques and different properties of printing inks.
