    This 1951 ad was created by S.N Lesage for lingerie company Scandale. It depicts the Biblical Eve standing almost nude before an apple tree, from which an apple has fallen with a bite taken out. The symbolism points to the erotic. The suggestion of temptation and sin points to the lascivious tone they were going for in advertising their lingerie. While the war years had been dour and restrictive, sexuality and femininity returned to the fore in the post-war era.

    Photography would take over advertising art in the 1960s, though in 1949 it was still only a minor form within the industry. Pictured is a woman modelling Scandale’s lingerie in moody lighting. This black and white ad selling Scandale’s bra and girdle is stylishly noir. In the late 1940s a picture as revealing as this one would have been a scandal in the USA- not so for lascivious France. Add some seductive beauty to your wall with this stunning piece.

    This brightly coloured ad for lingerie company Scandale was published in 1947. It was illustrated by Louis Delmotte, a prolific commercial artist whose swiftness and elegance of line lent well to the luxury products he frequently helped promote. Both the name ‘Scandale’ and the way the S loops around the pictured woman’s attractive legs evinces a seduction and eroticism that was key to Scandale’s marketing. The profusion of colours in the abstract background point to a joie de vivre that a renewed post-War France was happily embracing.

    This 1948 ad was illustrated by Jean Facon-Marrec for lingerie label Scandale. In it is depicted Mary Stuart, who was for a time in the mid-sixteenth century the queen consort of France, before becoming queen of Scotland. Text in a Roman-style typeface behind her tells the viewer ‘my fabulous jewels and finery are the world’s richest’. The modern woman, depicted in simple black outlines in the bottom right, responds with ‘but I have a Scandale gaine’. Thus the contemporary woman’s style is shown to rival the great opulence of Marie Stuart.

    A woman readies herself to throw a volleyball in this 1947 ad for beachwear illustrated by Fernando Bosc. Bold black ink outlines her body and emphasises the swift and graceful character of her movements. For its time her scantily clad form might have been a ‘Scandal’ in a more puritanical context, like the US. For lascivious France, it resonated with the popular mood. As traditional forms of femininity came into vogue again after the war, imagery like this was commonplace.
