Original poster of the film The Swimming PoolThe album, directed by Jacques Deray, came out in 1969, with Alain Delon, Romy Schneider, Maurice Ronet and Jane Birkin. Rare B model designed by Jacques Vaissier.

The French Riviera, the sky, the sun, the swimming pool: Marianne and Jean-Paul's villa is an invitation to laziness and pleasure. It will also be the theatre of frustration, jealousy, desire and anger leading to drama.

A classic film, The Swimming Pool lays the foundation for the sensual French thriller. It features the mythical couple formed by Delon & Schneider: Alain Delon imposes the choice of his on-screen partner on director Jacques Deray. His ex-girlfriend Romy Schneider then shares the starring role with him, and their love story turns out to be a powerful cinematic asset. Their complicity electrifies the film that relaunches the career of the interpreter of Sissi the Empress. This first collaboration between Jacques Deray and Alain Delon is a real success and the film becomes cult, carried by a resplendent couple full of feverish sensuality and the carefree spirit of its time.

All this is perfectly illustrated in model B of the original French poster, created by Jacques Vaissier. The sublime collage plays on contrasts: colour and black and white, portrait and American plan, feminine and masculine, calm and ardour... Also, the artist uses the pointillist effect, very fashionable at that time, and his particular grain, which can be found for example on the original posters of Bullitt or The Samurai.

Jacques Vaissier is a French poster artist whose major work for the cinema was between the 1940s and 1970s. He is the author of many French cinema posters including Living LifeA Little Sun in Cold Water, The Little Soldier, The Point of No Return, The Adventures of Rabbi Jacob

∗ The design is used for the Spanish poster, on which however Romy Schneider is dressed in her famous black bikini.
