About this Item

Paris in the Belle Epoque was the city of motor cars, and of the poster artist. Many of the successful makes of car were French and the courses à l'étoile which fanned out from paris successively to rejoin other great cities caught the imagination of the people. The artist whose name will always be linked with the heroic age is E. Montaut, whose coloured lithographs are the very embodiment of motor racing from the beginning until 1914. One might almost say that the Heroic Age was Montaut's own creation; certainly he dramatised it, and it was Montaut who invented, or at any rate popularised, all the tricks for putting speed on paper. No motoring collection is complete without its Montaut and this book contains 27 works of art reproduced in good quality along with a good introduction to the man and his style and technique. ( English and Italian text). Rare. Buyer pays postage at cost. Bookseller Inventory # 000057
