Ernest Montaut died at the young age of 31. Prints continued to be produced after his death by his wife Marguerite Montaut.

Ernest Montaut could easily be considered the father of ‘motor speed’ and Mecanic Art. He has invented numerous artistic techniques, such as speed lines and the deliberate distortion of perspective through bending and foreshortening of the image, to capture speed and create the impression of movement in his paintings. Some of his techniques are still used by contemporary artists today.
