Last year I received this original Schwinn ink drawing for the ladies Schwinn Paramount. It was done as an illustration from the Schwinn catalog. Finding original artwork that was done for catalogs is getting harder and harder to find, many lost to rubbage piles or forgotten by collectors vast portfolios. I have not done the research yet to find who the artist was, but the art is exquisite.

Daniel Rebour is often seen as the old master of vintage lightweight drawings. He was a technical draughtsmen from the mid 1940s until the mid1970s, churning out beautiful drawings detailing all the latest innovations and creative solutions to advancing cycling.
