‘V.Grosser Preis der Schweiz, Bern. 21. AUG. 1938’.

Overall size: 49 x 35 inches (126 x 89 cm).
This strong work by Bieber is one of the very rare and highly decorative posters created by a number of Swiss artists for the country’s various Grand Prix races of the 1930’s. Beneath the massive Swiss flag, occupying more than half the image, the Auto-Union racing car with its stylized driver, hurtles across at high speed.
In common with most Grand Prix posters, this would only have been printed in small numbers for local, as opposed to international, distribution. This, coupled with low survival rate of posters generally, ensures the rarity and desirability of this very fine, large format poster.
