Description: Artist: ALEXIS KOW (Alexei Kogeynikov, 1901-1978) Size: 13 7/8 x 21 5/8 in./35.4 x 55 cm While there is no evidence that this maquette was ever realized as an official poster, the design itself rivals that of the ones chosen to promote the 1961 Le Mans race. The nighttime scene of a driver flying through a tire superimposed with a watch truly captures the essence of this test of endurance. (auto, racing)

Dimensions: 13 7/8 x 21 5/8 in./35.4 x 55 cm
Artist or Maker: ALEXIS KOW (Alexei Kogeynikov, 1901-1978)
