More About this Item

Description: Artist: PRIVAT LIVEMONT (1861-1936) Size: 39 1/2 x 50 7/8 in./100.5 x 129.3 cm Imp. J. Barreau, Paris In 1902 and 1903, Livemont created several posters for the Automobile Club of France and its exhibitions, using elegantly-adorned Art Nouveau women as embodiments of the organization as a whole. "Here, the figure is seated on a throne in front of the Grand Palais exhibition hall, drenched in roses and hints of an international throng come to admire progress” (Gold, p. 56). She has a flywheel for a halo, wittily commenting upon Mucha's goddesses, and her foot rests upon an engine block. Cyclists adorn her throne, in a gesture to the history of transport manufacture (auto, great art nouveau)
