Beligond's second poster for the famous event. His posters form part of the “major illustrators era” 1954~63 which also includes the work of artists Geo Ham and Jeudon. Here, Beligond's bold colours depict the famous “Le Mans start”: the drivers sprinting to their cars.
The 1959 race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carol Shelby driving Aston Martin's iconic DBR1. The race remains Aston Martin's only outright win in this classic event.
The poster is in excellent condition, cleaned and backed on Japanese paper – a really lovely piece of artwork. The poster dimensions on the backing paper are 39.5×55.5cm/15.5×21.65 inches
