Spanish Moto Racing Posters

I adore the rough-hewn, suggestive painting technique on these posters from the ’53 and ’54 Gran Premio de España motorcycle races. Even better to see the tradition carrying on until at least this 1969 Premio Internaccional poster.

Is it simply because they’re Spanish that they’re bringing to mind Picasso’s gestural Bull paintings? Or is there something there—a certain Spanish style.

    The poster with the two bikes reminds me of the bike race sequences in A-Ha’s video for their song ‘Take On Me’. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djV11Xbc914
