Rene Vincent, french artist - illustrator 1920s in the art deco style


He enrolled in a famous school for architecture, and to help pay for it, began doing illustrations in books. Like that so much he changed majors.

He went under a few pseudonyms, Rene Mael, Rageot and Dufour, allowing him to change style freely.

Vincent’s success got him to visit the United States, where he did some work for esteemed magazines Saturday Evening and Harper’s Bazaar. When he arrived back in France, he set up his own studio in Paris. He began illustrating advertisements for Bugatti, Peugeot, Michelin, and Shell Oil.

As a keen automobilist, Vicent was one of the first French citizen to have a driver’s license. Additionally he built a garage onto his house, to park his Bugatti. In the 20s owning a car was a symbol of success.







the above is titled something like "instant energy when cold starting"
