Born into the well-heeled middle-class, Roger Broders graduates from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs, weds another artist and spends a quiet family life in Epinay/Orge suburb of Paris. Right after graduating from the Arts Deco School, he gets his first commissions llustrations in the then fashionable mannerist style
and begins a lifetime career as an illustrator, mostly with the Mame publishing house. Beginning in the 30’s he mostly paints exhibiting in several Parisian art galleries Roger Broders probably did not move in the advertising and graphic circles, he is rarely mentioned in the professional press and did not attend venues like the annual dinner of the poster artists that existed in those days. In fact, he will only fully dedicate himself to poster art during a ten-year span, between 1922 and 1932 although he previously completed some commercial art projects for Peugeot or Citroen. Following his meeting in 1922 with the head of PLM, Mr Margot, he comes in contact with the world of railroad advertising. Although producing fewer than 100 posters, he is nonetheless able to make his mark on the history of the travel poster and to create some of the most stunning images of his time.
