Working for over five decades, Villemot was trained by Art Deco artist Paul Colin. Amongst the most well known of Villemot’s works are those posters created for; Perrier, Bally, Orangina and SNCF (French Rail service). This Bernard Villemot Perrier print design was produced to advert mineral water for the French company Perrier.
