Roger Soubie (1898-1984): ‘Bugatti Type 35’.
A rare, second-edition poster created from the plates of the original of 1924. Conservation linen mounted, framed and glazed with UV resistant Plexiglas.
Size overall: 47 x 35 inches (120 x 90 cms).
Held in 1979 at London’s Royal College of Art, ‘The Amazing Bugattis’ exhibition showcased the genius of the entire Bugatti family – furniture and silver by Carlo Bugatti, sculpture by Rembrandt Bugatti, and of course the automotive masterpieces of Ettore Bugatti, and his son Jean.
This, the rarest of the handful of Bugatti posters by Roger Soubie, was originally commissioned by Ettore Bugatti in 1924 and was re-edited in a small, second edition for the 1979 show.
At around the same time, the heirs of French artist René Vincent authorised a similarly small second edition of his 1930 Art Deco poster for the marque (see Ref 5648).
We have available just one perfect, framed example of each of these posters.
