In this poster by Arthur, we see a highly stylized Art Deco version of what appears to be Peugeot’s type 190, which was launched in 1928. The type 190 had a small 4 cylinder, 14 horsepower engine, hitting a maximum speed of 37 MPH. The car had a timber frame body made of either ash or beech wood which was crafted by hand using carpenter’s tools. Peugeot’s 190 was very successful, selling over 30,000 cars.

"Erst…prufen Sie Einen" translates from German to roughly, "First…check one." The implication is that motorists should try a Peugeot before all other automobiles. Peugeot is a French automotive manufacturer that was founded in 1858. The first car the company built was an unsuccessful steam tricycle. Peugeot has received many International awards for its vehicles and has been successfully involved in motor sport for over a century.

The Art Deco movement was an offshoot of the groundbreaking 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts. Artists took inspiration from Russian, Persian and Oriental influences, as well as the streamlined stylings of Cubism.

  • 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.
