Grand Prix Automobile de Monaco Posters

Grand Prix Automobile de Monaco Posters. Monaco posters provide a wonderful graphic historical record of the splendor and aura of these races

The first Grand Prix automobile race was held in Le Mans in 1906, and by the 1920s Grand Prix races were being contested in Italy, Spain, Belgium, Great Britain, and Germany.

In 1929, Monaco became the seventh country to hold a Grand Prix race. It was contested on a two-mile, 100 lap course through the streets of Monte Carlo (now it is a 160 mile, 78 lap race). The Grand Prix de Monaco is considered to be the most glamorous, prestigious, and famous Formula One race. Monaco posters provide a wonderful graphic historical record of the splendor and aura of these races, with the posters from 1930 to the 1960s being incredibly iconic, rare, and beautiful works of art.
