This poster was created c1930 for the French company Favor, manufacturer of bicycles and motorcycles. Favor was founded in 1898 in Clemont-Ferrand, a French city in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region where the Michelin tire company is also based. Favor motorcycles were regularly ridden to victory in French national championships throughout the 1950s. The company closed in 1977.

Jean Pruniere (1901-1944) was a French painter and illustrator, who designed some of the Favor posters. This poster has a unique square format with an inserted circle. In the center, the speeding images of cyclist and a motorcyclist catch the attention of the viewer. They are a reminder of the start of the company making bicycles and how they evolve to more modern motorcycles. Pruniere has done a great work representing the speed effect in these elegant figures.
