Cycles de Dion-Bouton (full size), 1912

Fournery, Felix poster: Cycles de Dion-Bouton (full size)

The fresh breeze at the beach is palpable in this delightful oversized poster by fashion illustrator and painter Felix Fournery. It is a romantic vision - a pretty bicyclist holds her hat on her head as she and her dog enjoy a moment at the misty seaside. The monochromatic image is punctuated only by the the subject's muted orange jacket.

The poster was so successful that it was reproduced more than a decade later in 2 smaller formats, complete with updated fashions and different color palette.
