La Poursuite 2 Colour Screen Print by Otto von Beach
Hand-pulled screenprint celebrating the third stage of the inaugural Tour de France in 1903: Marseille to Toulouse.
The riders are divided into two groups, with those no longer contesting the overall classification made to start an hour after the main field. Aucouturier protests, but Garin holds sway (“If Aucouturier goes with me in the first group, I will abandon the race!”)
During the stage, Garin takes a wrong turn and is forced to retrace his route. Aucouturier, riding alone in the intense heat and wind, relentlessly chases down his rival and wins the stage.
The third stage: unquestionably the hardest. A start in darkness beneath the moon’s sad gaze, a terrible mistral, atrocious roads, then a blazing sun, the desert once more and across the Cévennes under a white hot sky.
