A magnet featuring Cycles Brillant, 1925, by A.M. Cassandre.
One of Cassandre’s earliest designs, this poster is also one of his most minimal. In a composition made up almost entirely of circles and lines that takes full advantage of negative space, it economically expresses a cyclist speeding around a velodrome. Born in Ukraine, Cassandre moved to Paris to study painting. From 1923 to 1928, he worked for the Hachard printing office, introducing his interpretation of Modernism to the world through advertising.
Magnet measures 3 x 2 inches.
