Description: Artist: LEONETTO CAPPIELLO (1875-1942) Size: 51 1/8 x 78 1/2 in./129.9 x 199.5 cm Imp. P. Vercasson, Paris “Fernand Charron, who won the first Gordon Bennett cup in a car of his own design in 1900, eventually took over the Automobiles Charron firm and manufactured large, comfortable – and expensive – sedans. The closed cab shown in the poster was the natural automotive evolution from a carriage design – it was very popular with the aristocracy as it exuded elegance and luxury. All of this is reinforced in Cappiello's design, showing an elegant lady giving directions to her driver before entering the cab. The frame around the image, including the title plate, suggests that the Charron automobile is a masterpiece” (Cappiello/Rennert, p. 90).
