Cycles Griffon Poster
France, c. 1900
22 x 31 in (56 x 79 cm)
This amazing original poster advertises a French bike company. A feroicious gryphon shrouded in bold sunlight ptoects a much more serene scene, a lovely woman in blue cycling down a country road. This turn-of-the-century piece is distinctive in style and definitely eye-catching. For fans of the Belle Epoque/Art Nouveau era of design, this one is for you.
