$1,250.00
A hand-colored, lithograph signed by the French artist Gamy, depicting a Majola at speed, circa 1913. Gamy was the wire of Ernest Montaut (1879-1909), who was a French illustrator of early automobile racing, air and water subjects. Production of the hand-colored lithographs, continued after Montaut’s death and it is presumed that the later prints from the artist signed “Gamy” were produced by Montaut’s wife Marguerite. Montaut invented various artistic techniques, such as, speed lines and distorting perspective by foreshortening to give the feel of speed. He used a lithographic stone to create an outline, called the Pochoir process, they were printed by Mabileau et Cie., Paris. Outlines were then painted in by hand, using watercolors. Each print took a two to three days to complete.
