Georges Sérès, one of the premier track riders of the 1920s, was most noted for his prominence as a stayer rider (racing behind a specially designed motorcycle). In this discipline, he won the 1920 World Championships. This striking poster captures Sérès in a full race pose, complete with a heavy leather helmet, French National Team jersey, and special black leather racing shoes.
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.
