Sale 2133 Lot 50
O' GALOP (MARIUS ROSSILLON 1867-1946) HOUDAILLE. Circa 1905.
62 x 46 inches. Societe Generale de Publicite, Paris.
Condition A-: minor restoration along unobtrusive vertical and horizontal folds; repaired tear through top margin.
Although world-renowned for creating Bibendum, the Michelin Man, O'Galop's career covered far more ground. He was largely a cartoonist, designing comic-strips for magazines all around Paris. This previously unreferenced poster is typical of his humorous style. It is a comic, eye-catching scene that would quickly convince anyone without shock absorbers on the car to use the tires!
