Roberto Falcucci (1900-1989:) ‘Monaco Grand Prix 1930’.
Original poster, conservation linen mounted and framed with a gold leaf frame, and glazed with UV Plexiglas.
Dimensions: 53 x 37 inches (135 x 94 cms).
Notes: Although the first Monaco Grand Prix was run in 1929, a poster was not created for the event, and so this poster, was the first Monaco Grand Prix poster ever designed, advertising the 1930 race.
The winner that year was Rene Dreyfus, driving a Bugatti T35B. The multi-talented Falcucci – painter, decorator, ilustrator, poster artist – began his involvement with auto graphics at Renault but became known for his Monaco poster designs of the 1930s. For many years he was the official historical painter for the French Army.
