Kasper Ernst Graf (1909-1988)
‘Grand Prix Suisse 1934’.
Arguably the most Art Deco-styled poster of the 1930s, Graf shows the Type 59 Bugatti and Maserati 8CM against the dramatic backdrop of the Bernese Oberland and the steeple of Berne Cathedral. One of the rarest and most valuable Grand Prix posters of the 1930s, this is the desirable French text version, and was printed by Societe Polygraphique in Laupen, Switzerland. The winner was Hans Stuck in his Auto-Union, at the Bremgarten circuit in Berne, which hosted races through to 1954. In the Swiss ‘weltformat’ size, in perfect, original condition.
Conservation mounted, framed and glazed.
Overall size: 59 x 44 inches (150 x 112 cm)
