The Monaco Grand Prix was first run in 1929, and became one of the most celebrated and dangerous events on the international circuit. Georges Hamel, who signed his works Geo Ham, created his first poster for the event in 1933 and continued through 1937, the last race before a 10 year hiatus surrounding the war years.
The 1935 poster is certainly one of Ham's finest, showing a hurtling race car that momentarily becomes air borne, with a glittering Monte Carlo skyline as a backdrop. Beautifully printed by Monegasque, the racing machine appears to explode off the paper.
All prewar Monaco Grand Prix posters are rare and are difficult to find. This example is in excellent condition with extremely fresh color. Framed in a hand rubbed solid maple frame.
