      ADRIEN BARRÈRE (1877-1931) A. BROSSARD / LE "3 VITESSES" / L'IDÉAL DU TOURISTE. 1903.
      53 1/4x37 1/2 inches, 135 1/4x95 1/4 cm. Ch. Wall & Cie., Paris.
      Condition B: replaced losses in upper left corner and along bottom margin; repaired tears, creases and overpainting in margins and image; staining in upper right corner. Framed.
      Barrère was first and foremost a caraicaturist, and his posters largely advertise performers and performances, with very few of his images involving actual product advertising. This is one of two posters he designed for the vibrant bicycle industry, here promoting a three-speed attachment that could be adapted to most bicycles. Rare. We could find only one other example at auction. Ailes p. 97.
