Clever design is on display in this Art Nouveau poster for Cycles Perfecta by Achille Butteri. Each member of this dapper cycling family looks in a different direction, and as viewers we're forced to focus first on the bicycle at the center. It is an effective advertisement that works double duty as a beautiful piece of art.

Achille Butteri plays with the Art Nouveau stylings of flattened planes, most notably in each riders' outfit. The Art Nouveau school was heavily influenced by the flattened planes of Japanese woodblock prints, first widely seen in France and the Western World around this time. Art Nouveau is closely related to the Arts and Crafts movement of decor and architecture; both were embraced by artists attempting to reject the clinical and rote designs stemming from the Industrial Revolution. Alphons Mucha and Gustav Klimt are two of the most well-known artists to work in this style.

Cycles Perfecta was a British bicycle company that also sold its products in France. At the end of the 19th Century, the bicycle was the growing mode of transportation for most people. Faced with the rising interest in the newly invented automobile, bicycle companies made effective use of the poster medium to promote their products.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
