EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to a time of daring exploration and adventure. The image showcases a group of French explorers, their faces filled with determination, as they prepare to embark on an epic journey across the vast Sahara desert. The scene is set between Touggourt and Niger, where these intrepid individuals are about to undertake a grueling 3000 km raid. What sets this expedition apart is the use of specially built cars, which stand proudly in the foreground. These automotive marvels were designed specifically for traversing the challenging terrain of the desert. Published in "Le petit Journal Illustre" on April 2nd, 1922, this engraving captures not only a moment frozen in time but also represents an era when car racing was gaining popularity worldwide. It symbolizes human ingenuity and our relentless pursuit of pushing boundaries. The artist behind this remarkable piece remains anonymous, yet their skillful hand brings life to every detail within the print. Stefano Bianchetti's private collection now houses this historical gem that has long surpassed copyright restrictions. As we gaze upon this awe-inspiring artwork today, it serves as a reminder of mankind's unyielding spirit for exploration and discovery. It invites us to imagine ourselves alongside those brave French explorers as they embarked on their extraordinary journey through one of nature's most unforgiving landscapes - the majestic Sahara desert.
