Colour lithograph by Marguerite Montaut published by Mabileau and Co, Paris. The picture shows Louis Paulhan's Farman biplane flying above railway tracks on 27-28 April 1910, on his way to becoming the first aviator to fly from London to Manchester, for which he won a £10,000 prize offered by the Daily Mail. Ernest Montaut (1879-1909) and his wife, Marguerite (or Gamy), 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.
