The 1959 French Grand Prix was won Britain's Tony Brooks driving a Ferrari Dino 246, shown here leading the race.
Jean Des Gachons designed a number of posters for auto sport events from the late 1940s to the early 1960s. This poster is a lovely example of the artist's body of work.
The poster is in good condition. There are some very minor age related nicks along the right hand edge, and some small water stains along the top right corner. The word “voitures” shows some minor abrasive wear to the ink. The colours in the main area are bright and strong. It will look amazing once linen backed.
