The beginning of the 20th Century witnessed the dawn of the era of the automobile. The early autimobiles were often open air with no roof. Such is the case with this illustration by the artist, Georges Meunier, where we see the motorist in his long coat standing on the top of his automobile in order to get closer to the womn reaching over the wall. The image is titled 'Moto Flirt' and it certainly is aptly named as they are clearly flirting with each other while the passenger looks up to watch.
Georges Meunier (1869-1042) was a talented artist who created a small body of posters between 1894 - 1910. He was born in Saint Cloud, France and trained in Paris at the National School of Fine Arts. He worked at the Chaix Print Studios under Jules Cheret and clearly emulated Cheret's style with Meunier's flair for humor.
