A masterpiece by Théophile Alexandre Steinlen and an icon of the Belle Epoque.

To promote the new model of Motocycles Comiot (capable of going up to 25 km/h) and equipped with a De Dion engine, Steinlen shows an elegant and modern young woman, contrasting with a couple of farmers at work in the background. The flock of frightened geese symbolises the raucous intrusion of modernity and speed into the rural world. While the motorbike and the driver seem static, it is the flock of frightened geese that breaks the silence and creates the image of speed.

A major work of the Belle Epoque in excellent condition, canvas mounted on a wooden frame.
