BANQUE DE FRANCE
MILLE FRANCS

Engraver: André Marliat

Designer: Clément Serveau

Henri Clément Serveau, also known as Clément-Serveau (29 June 1886 – 8 July 1972), was a French painter, designer, engraver and illustrator. Clément-Serveau produced works in a realist manner early on, but soon became interested in the new movements. He was influenced by his friend Louis Marcoussis and experimented with Cubism, utilising geometric patterns to give the illusion of form and space. Later in his career he turned toward abstraction with a post-cubist stance. He designed banknotes for the Banque de France and produced large murals and participated in numerous French and international exhibitions.

Reverse

Portrait of woman in center with veil on hair. Plant motifs.

1000 francs Minerve et Hercule (type 1945)
Une combinaison de signataires :
a) René Favre-Gilly – Jacques Belin – Pierre Rousseau (26/04/45)

Type 1945 adapté 1945
Le papier «purs chiffons» remplace le mélange «ramie-chiffons» en mai 1945, en raison de la pénurie de matières premières. Le papier perd un peu de sa rigidité, de sa solidité à la pliure et de son sonnant.

a) René Favre-Gilly – Jacques Belin – Pierre Rousseau (du 31/05/45 au 09/01/47)
