Sale 2476 Lot 60
DESIGNER UNKNOWN TISÍCE DALŠÍCH KILOMETRU / S OLEJEM CAROIL. Circa 1930.
37 1/2x25 3/4 inches, 95 1/4x65 1/2 cm. V. Neubert a Synové, Prague.
Condition B+: repaired tears, restored losses, creases and overpainting at edges, some affecting image.
This curious photomontage of an intent driver, gripping the steering wheel and focusing on the road ahead, supports the company slogan, "Three thousand kilometers with Caroil." Arguably, the motor oil he uses is so good that he doesn't even need to think about his car as he drives, which is why no vehicle is depicted at all.
