The Hommage:

Hommage au Vélo artwork is inspired by the leading actors of the Grand Tours and Classics. We take the central characters of cycling history and interpret them and their machines. No bicycle gets painted that hasn’t played a defining role in the evolution of the racing bike; only iconic riders who have shaped the sport around them make the scene. Hommage au Vélo has created a new standard for cycling artwork. Ensure that the prints in your home embody your passion for the sport as much as the bicycle you ride. Do you have a Hommage?


Artistic Medium: Oil-on-Canvas


Oil painting of the most famous cycling jersey in the history of the sport (arguably). Worn by Tom Simpson, Britain's first World Champion on the road, but also by Eddy Merckx, this design has influenced decades of cycling jersey design. Lovely texture and depth, never before has a jersey been made into such a stunning painting that will draw admiration and questions from everybody that sees it.


Unframed Print: 45cm width x 50cm height, printed on ultra-premium German Hahnemuhle textured 310gsm etching paper. Arrives rolled in acid-free paper within a crush-proof circular art mailing tube.

Arrives in dedicated art packaging for framed paintings to protect during transit.
