    Original 1949 DANIEL REBOUR artwork

    Up for sale is this INCREDIBLY rare opportunity to own an original piece of artwork by Daniel Rebour.

    I looked for many years to find one for sale, and they are impossible to find. So many of his pieces were done for catalogs and advertising, so after reproduction for their purpose they were destroyed.

    I know I will probably never find another for sale again, but I'm more interested in adding to my collection of dropouts than artwork, so it is time for some other Rebour fanatic to gaze upon it.

    One of the things about this piece that makes it even more incredible than many of his other drawings is that it is a concept piece. Unless you are well versed in your Rebour, you probably don't know that the vast majority of his art was essentially traced and shaded with his talented hand. He was a skilled photographer and would take the picture he wanted, and only partially develop it in his darkroom. Then, he would trace over it, shade accordingly, and wash off the developed image leaving only what he had done in pen.

    This is a piece of his own conjuring, drawn with his own mental perspective of a novel handlebar/headlight with integrated brake levers. Very interesting indeed. It was done for the poster to advertise the 1949 Paris-Milan Bike Show. The art is 9"x7.5" and is currently framed. I can ship it framed or loose, however you prefer.

    I'm also including what was included when I acquired it, which is the placeholder for text for the poster. This is written in Rebour's own hand, and used for a rough mock-up of what was to be done.The image is obviously represented on the poster as "2".

    $1000 takes it

    Please feel free to ask any and all questions.

    Not being a wise a** but maybe contact Jan Heine at Compass bikes or show it on the Classic Rendezvous site to see if someone there may have an interest? Cool piece but well out of my range.
