1937 Delahaye at Monaco poster.
This lovely original poster features artwork by iconic art deco artist Pierre Fix-Masseau. It measures over three feet tall (24.5×39″ / 63x99cm) and is perfect to hang in your garage, office, den or museum!
The artwork features the gorgeous Figoni et Falaschi bodied Delahaye 135 M amidst the backdrop of the famous Monte Carlo casino. It commemorates the 1937 Monte Carlo Rally, at which a competition version of the car won first place.
Pierre Fix-Masseau (1905 – 1994) was the son of French sculptor Pierre Felix-Masseau. He worked closely with master designer A.M. Cassandre from 1926 to 1928, who had a profound influence on his art deco style. Pierre is best remembered for his posters featuring railway and automotive themes.
This poster has been hand signed in pencil by the late Pierre Fix Masseau. It was printed by Atelier Mourlot in 1989 in very limited quantities on heavyweight paper and is in excellent condition.
Note: we also have some that have ‘printed’ signatures for less, CAN$595
