Lucien Virot was a French art deco painter, illustrator and designer. These studies are possibly from book illustrations. 2 of them being vignettes, they are painted very much in the art deco style. He clearly is a master of line, executing these delightful drawings with amazing precision. These would be a great addition to anyone who likes the art deco or who’s passionate for cycling.
