Founded in 1898 by Eugene Gobron and Gustav Brillie. The vehicles were equipped with an unusual engine.At one time Gobron held the speed record in a 100 hp car driven by Rigolly at 83 mph. The poster is very effective with the name of the firm appearing in huge letters. The poster is extremely rare and when we published the book we only could find a black and white document. Jules-Alexandre Grun (25 May 1868 – 15 February 1934) was a French post-impressionist painter, poster artist, and illustrator.[1] Grun's best known painting is called The Dinner Party, produced in 1911. It was, however, in the fields of poster art and illustration art, for which he was famous. He was employed at a large printing company in Paris and his artistic director was Jules Cheret. Cheret was also his main competitor in poster art. (Wiki) This Poster is published in Grun Posters Book by Israel Perry and Alain Weill , 2005, Page 103
