This poster is an original first printing, not a reproduction.
Exhibition Provenance: This original vintage bicycle poster was showcased at the 2018 L’Etape California by Le Tour de France Historic Tour de France Exhibit.
The beautiful poster is from a 1950 movie about the Tour de France, staring Louison Bobet.
In this striking artwork, the rider seems as if he is going to ride right out of the image and carry on up the mountain.
This poster has been archivally and professionally linen backed. Virtually all original vintage posters of this era were viewed as temporary advertising and were printed on very thin paper. While expensive, linen backing is a conservation method used to mount, stabilize, preserve and protect vintage posters so they can be displayed or framed without compromising value. We take great care to ensure the posters in our collection are linen backed by a very competent professional in France who uses acid-free materials and executes a process that is entirely reversible.
Size: 70 x 100 cm ( 27.5 x 39.5 inches)
