The following group of four posters (pochoirs) are called "Montaut's" after Ernest Montaut (1879-1909) for their size and shape as well as subject matter. He popularized this horizontal format of early automobile and aviation pochoir (French: "stencil"), distinguishing it from ordinary stenciling as a highly refined technique of making fine limited editions of stencil prints. It is often called hand colouring, or hand illustration.

Having died young at 30, Montaut's wife Marguerite took up this technique as well, signing her work with her nickname "Gamy". She went on to have a distinguished career doing many "montauts".

Prices available upon request. Please call 310.748.4000
