Artist: ANDREAS K. HEMBERGER Size: 18 5/8 x 24 7/8 in./47.2 x 63.2 cm Werner U. Winter, Frankfurt Developing its first tricycle sometime in the 1870s, Adler is one of the earliest German bike manufacturers, eventually branching off into bicycle, motorcycle, and even car production up through the 1930s. Here, we see a rider dramatically from above, the eagle from which it gets its name casting a large shadow along the ground.
