Johannes (Hans) Handschin was a leader of the Basel graphic art movement in Switzerland. Inspired by both the object posters of Stoecklin, and the Art Deco aesthetic, he produced both airbrush-style posters - like this image for the Grand Prix in the Montreux, and hyper-realist depictions of Swiss-manufactured products. The race was held five times between 1924 and 1937. Poetics fig. 4.7.
