Poster by George Bottini for Cycles Medinger

Medinger Cycles was founded by Paul Medinger, who belonged to the first generation of professional cyclists. He was active from 1882 to 1894. In those years he was six times French sprint champion and set two world records.

George Alfred Bottini, is a painter, draftsman, and French engraver, who was inspired by the dance halls, bars, theaters and brothels of Belle Epoque in Paris. Many artists like Steinlen or Toulouse-Lautrec were inspired by Montmartre at the end of the 19th century.

On this poster, a group of elegantly dressed women discusses around a Medinger bicycle. This advertisement invites women to ride a bike. In the background, cyclists are competing in a track cycling event.

This poster can be likened to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's two cycling posters: Cycles Michael and the Chaine Simpson.
