JEAN CARLU (1900-1997)

PEUGEOT. 1922.

63 1/2x46 3/4 inches, 161 1/4x118 3/4 cm. Draeger, Paris.
Condition B+: replaced lower right corner; repaired tears, small replaced losses, creases and restoration along vertical and horizontal folds.

An early and rare image in which Carlu turns his young, yet talented abilities towards a bicycle ad. Although the concept of a woman atop the globe holding a bicycle aloft is certainly not a new idea, Carlu delivers a brightly-colored, well-executed image that perfectly serves a poster's primary purpose, to stop a person on the street and deliver a message.
