Coloured lithograph by Marguerite Montaut, showing a biplane flying close to the ground, watched by a group of seven men in white and two uniformed officers: Lieutenant Fequant and Capitaine Marconnet. Ernest Montaut (1879-1909) and his wife, Marguerite were the first artists to capture the Heroic Age of aviation and motor racing. The Gamy-Montaut prints were produced by the pochoir proces, in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. The prints were then painstakingly coloured using individual colour stencils. She carried on producing pictures for Mabileau & Co after the death of her husband. It is also posible that she was the painter known as Gamy.
