Description

One of six coloured lithographs by Gamy published by Malibeau & Co, Paris, 1909-1911. It shows Farman (1878-1964) in an aeroplane fitted with a Renault motor, on the 'Voyage de Bac a Chartres'. Farman and his brother Henri Farman (1874-1958) were pioneer aviators and aircraft manufacturers, together they built and made the first flight in a Voisin biplane. Ernest Montaut (1879-1909) and his wife, Marguerite (who Gamy is posibly a pseudonym for), 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, printed and hand-coloured.
