Description: Artist: ARTHUR FOACHE (1871-1967) Size: 39 1/2 x 55 in./100.2 x 139.8 cm Imp. Bourgerie, Paris With a lifelong love of cycling, Adolphe Clément opened his first bicycle manufacturing business in 1878, complete with a repair shop and cycling school. By 1890, his small, local business had become the most popular bicycle brand in France. As Clément was also a fanatical racer, it seems only fitting that the muse in this poster should be carrying the many laurels won by him and his brand. (bicycle, bike, great art nouveau)
