The art of 1930s French pharmaceutical ads

Ad for Irradiated Opocalcium from the collection of Jérôme Dubois / 50 Watts

When I was a teenager I started buying imports of US music magazines. One thing I remember are the pharmaceutical ads, which were strange to me because in the UK such ads weren’t permitted. They were many things, but they were never artistic. So it’s interesting to see this collection of 24 Pharmaceutical Ads from 1930s France, curated by Jérôme Dubois via 50 Watts.
