Description

This vertical banner offers us twelve portrayals of Bibendum. The first impression we get is the complicity between Bibendum and the moon: he appears to be dreaming... printed in two colours on paper in two sections (the break is located between Bibendum the orchestra conductor and rugby player). This printed banner was intended for advertising in garages and the premises of tyre retailers in the United States. It was used in shop windows which were generally small in the early twentieth century.
Although depictions of Bibendum in the United States can be difficult to date, here we have an unmistakable graphic clue in the aircraft featured in the scene. It is without any doubt the Blériot VII, which flew in 1907 and 1908.
For the rest, let Bibendum's imagination run free in this composition which is truly in the spirit of his creator Marius Rossillon (1867-1946), better known by the name O'Galop.
