Take a step back in history, to the early days of automobile racing! This amazing piece features a reprint of the official poster for the second annual Monte Carlo Rally, Prince Albert I of Monaco's showcase of automotive innovation and technology. A spectacular work of Art Nouveau-era poster art by Elio Ximenes, it features the cars of the era about to descend from the cliffs down to the Monaco coast, under the flags of a dozen competing nations (France, England, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, USA, and others). From the earliest days of the event that would eventually become one of the highest-profile races in the world, and in 1973 became the opening race in the World Rally Championship series. For car racing enthusiasts and lovers of early 20th century European poster art, this is a must for your wall!
