  • The end of the 19th Century saw the growth of the interest in bicycles for urban transportation at the same time that the newly invented automobile came into existence. There was an abundance of posters relating to Cycles as a means of competing against the automobile. In this striking image of a Native American fleeing a group on slower bikes, we are reminded of the French favoritism in that era of things American. It somehow lent a special cache’ to the Cleveland Cycle in its association woth a Native American. This is the middle of 3 sizes that this poster was produced in.
    Jean de Paleologue (1855-1942), better known as PAL, was a Romanian born poster artist, painter, and illustrator active in France during the late nineteenth century. He produced many elegant posters featuring beautiful women. He created posters for all the popular brands of the time including Clement Cycles and many posters for liquor and entertainment venues that are still desired by collectors today.
