Delval makes effective use of his driver in this engaging interpretation of the start line for the 1935 Nice Grand Prix, a poster design greatly admired for its eyecatching, geometric nature. France was the first home of the automobile and there was a surge of interest in related art and
objets in Paris at the beginning of the last century. In the racing calendar, Riviera venues such as La Turbie, Monaco and Nice held a special appeal for artists who sought to capture the new spirit of speed and excitement.
