Auto Poster Designs of the Century

May 10, 2018

Monte Carlo original tourism poster by Steve Carpenter

Automobile Posters served a very important purpose in the first half of the last century.  They were placed in windows or pasted on walls to draw people’s attention to the products of auto manufacturer’s, upcoming or famous races or to celebrate important car shows or auto clubs.  But more importantly, before the advent of the television, these pieces of collectable art were one of the only visual mediums that could attract the attention of customers and race fans and deliver them to the Companies and Venues that survived on their patronage.  Visit our Blog for a fascinating article, detailing how the art of the 1890’s through the 1960’s effected the advertisements and commemorations that have been put down to poster paper and how those works of automobilia have effected the art world in turn.  

Also all the pieces discussed in the article and many others are available in our collection, which can be toured here.  Now its your turn to collect a piece of history, so feel free to peruse the galleries below at you leisure and possibly add a piece of art history to your collection.

The Holiday Season is in full swing, so we wanted to share a little Historical Holiday Cheer from all of us at l'art et l'automobile. Though it may seem like the tradition of spraying champagne after a race is as old as motor sport itself, the story has more intricate roots. It all began in 1967, when Dan Gurney started the tradition that has graced and stained countless podiums began.

December 13, 2018

In the beginning of NASCAR, the sport was closely entangled with one clear, highly flammable and potentially poisonous liquid, moonshine.  Read the article to learn more about the transformation from backwoods bootleggers to international sports icons, and the Art and Memorabilia that celebrates them.
