Edouard Alexandre Bernard designed this poster for a Ford dealership in Paris. A skilled caricaturist, Bernard is largely unknown today; his client is long out of business and the street where the dealership was located no longer exists, making a historical reconstruction of the context for this artwork an exercise in sentiment. What is left is a beautifully detailed image filled with movement and humor. When restoring artwork in this highly detailed style it is important to divide the image into sections so no part is left untreated.
