1955 - Advertising poster - Cycles Louison Bobet
Linen backed painting art bicycle poster "The unprecedented feat, Louison Bobet, winner of 3 Tours de France, wins the Tour 1955, on bicycle Louison Bobet". With photo of the unforgettable Breton champion (1925-1983), and map of the Tour in yellow. Very rare masterpiece for museum.
It’s an original vintage bicycle poster, NOT a reproduction.
This poster has been archivally mounted on acid free paper with museum wheat paste and backed with linen canvas (Linen Backed). This protects the fragile poster. Early vintage posters viewed as temporary advertising were printed on inexpensive paper as their purpose was to be glued up on a wall or kiosk and most probably to have a different one replace it in a short time.
While expensive, linen backing is a conservation method used to mount, stabilize, preserve and protect vintage posters so they can be displayed or framed without compromising value.
