AIR FRANCE in the 50's

Golden Creek Studio worked with Musée Air France to develop a portolio of fine art prints that would commerate Air France’s formidable expansion after WWII, at a time when commercial aviation was just a dream for most people.
rom 1945 to 1960
, the fundamentals of air transportation drastically changed: airplanes replaced seaplanes, North America and Europe were connected non-stop, speed increased 2-fold, cruising altitude 3-fold, passenger capacity 5-fold and range 6-fold. And all that, with propeller airplanes !
Air France did take advantage of the opportunities offered by these significant advances to build the largest network in the world and secure a major and sustainable position in the airline world.


Lucio Perinotto's talents led him to be recognized in 1992 as a French official aviation artists. Winning many awards, he is now recognized as the most talented aviation artist in France.
is first black & white oil paintings of propliners were released in 1996. The lack of colour and his simple but effective style give his work an exceptional vitality, due to incredible handling of light and shade.
Who better than Perinotto could bring Air France propliners back to life? Perinotto composed 10 exclusive black & white oil canvases
for Golden Creek Studio; each canvas commemorates a different Air France propliner, from the impressive Laecoere 631 seaplane to the elegant, but short-lived Super Starliner.
