L. LUCIEN FAURE
(1872 – 1943)
THE FARMAN BROTHERS

Early print by artist L. Lucien Faure depicting the Farman brothers, Henri and Maurice, attempting to stay in front of an approaching competitor in an early race.

Faure’s prints of motoring competitions are well known and avidly collected.  Henri Farman (1874-1958) was a renaissance man who, during his life, was a painter, a racing motorist and an aviation pioneer.

The print retains excellent definition and color for its vintage.  It is matted closely to its margins for a maximized presentation.  An early motoring print to grace a collector’s wall.

A FAIR DRIVER - 1908
HARRISON FISHER
(1875 – 1934)

A properly attired lady driver of the period (1908) by the noted illustrator Harrison Fisher.  This print was produced by Charles Scribner & Sons N.Y. in 1908.

Women drivers were few at that time, and the cars and roads dictated the limitations of fashion as Fisher shows in this subject.  The gentleman driver of the period wore a duster (coat), a cap and goggles, but as can be seen, a higher sense of fashion applied to the ladies.

Matted, glazed and mounted in an 18" by 24" frame.
