Cycles Clement Paris - Vintage French Bicycle Poster
Cycles Clément, Paris - Pneu DunlopThe artwork for the original colour lithograph was created by Jean de Paleologue, published by Caby & Chardin, Imprimeurs, Paris, for the famous Clément Cycles in 1898.
In 1896 Adolphe Clément owned the very profitable manufacturing rights for Dunlop Tyres in France. He entered into a partnership with a syndicate led by Dunlop's founder Harvey Du Cros to buy out the Gladiator Cycle Company and then later merged the company to become the major bicycle manufacturing conglomerate of Clément, Gladiator & Humber & Co Limited.. The company grew and in 1902 the motorised bicycle led to cars and motorcycles. From 1909 the company became known as Clément-Bayard.

His works appeared in many periodicals, including Vanity Fair, Strand Magazine, New York Herald Tribune, Plume, Rire, Cocorico, Froufrou, Sans-Gêne, and Vie en Rose.
