On August 1st 1983, the Tour de France is well and truly finished, the winning yellow jersey is put away for next year. As a cycling enthusiast, Sempé literally put (la petite reine)… the nickname for the Tour de France on the cover of the New Yorker, making his drawings a constant dialogue between the deepest France and the paradoxes of New York. Here he crowds the drawing with wheels and frames, as tight as the space between Manhattan's skyscrapers.
Framed, this illustration will look wonderful in a an entrance hall, a living room or a bedroom.
This print is available in several formats.
The 30x40 and 40x50 illustrations come already mounted (The dimensions include the drawing and the mount board from Canson®).
The XXL 56x76 cm illustration: Because of its size, the quality of the printing and the art paper that is being used, this art print renders more vividly the artist’s emotion. Each illustration is printed to order with the greatest attention to details and respect to its original artwork. Colours are rich and lines are pure. For this particular size, Image Republic has chosen the high quality 250 gr art velum from Velin d’Arche® which is normally used for lithographs. The raw edge of the velum sheet brings the print a beautiful and elegant finish. Each print is certificated and wrapped in silk paper before being rolled up in a tube for delivery.
