Marcello Dudovich
"Fabrique Nationale d'Armes de Guerre" Original Vintage Motorcycle Poster

1913

$10,500

About

Dudovich is considered one of Italy's greatest poster artists. This rare design for a motorbike company (which also made firearms) dates from the same years that he was creating his famous posters for the Mele Department Store shortly before WWI. It shows an intent rider speeding up a long, steep hill winding in the background - this is a bike made for serious business. The design is rendered beautifully, and along with its extraordinary color palette of nearly iridescent blues, greens and cream it is hard to take your eye off of the poster. This is an original vintage lithographic poster and is guaranteed to be an original. We are a leading original vintage poster dealer for 26 years - send us a message if you have any queries!
