Description: Artist: HENRI DE TOULOUSE-LAUTREC (1864-1901) Size: 48 1/2 x 33 7/8 in./123 x 86 cm Imp. Chaix, Paris Lautrec's improper drawing of the chain resulted in this design being rejected. Therefore, he did the only sensible thing and ran off 200 copies at his own cost for the amusement of his friends and collectors. The cyclist is the British champion Jimmy Michael - the toothpick in his mouth was his trademark. The man with the stopwatch is the sports correspondent Frantz Reichel. Meanwhile, bending over the bag in the background is Michael's coach, Choppy Warburton. The scene is the Buffalo track in Neuilly; it was printed in a olive-green monochrome. (bicycle, bike)
Condition Report: B/ Slight tears & stains at edges.
Dimensions: 48 1/2 x 33 7/8 in./123 x 86 cm
