I'm new to the forum but this seems like a very knowledgeable community - hoping someone can help! I just acquired a total of 5 original illustrations from France that I believe are design renderings from a coachbuilder. The drawings all have the same signature (R. Steffen) and are dated between 1922 and 1930. Most of the drawings have 2 cars per sheet.

The cars pictured are Rolls Royce, Avions Voisin, Lancia and Hispano Suiza. They are exceptionally detailed and very well executed.

I acquired these as-is and have no further information regarding their history. I'm hoping that some forum members might be able to provide more information about the artist and / or coachbuilder who made these. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!!
