Virtual gallery to display the Art of Motoring
Britain’s Royal Automobile Club has unveiled an exhibition of automotive art that you can view, and buy, from home. The club’s annual Art of Motoring event has moved online instead of being held in its swanky London clubhouse.
The show gathers works from 22 artists and sculptors, working with a diverse range of media from traditional etching to state-of-the-art 3D printing.
In a rather meta moment, former Le Mans winner and Formula 1 driver Stefan Johansson took up residence in Los Angeles to create abstract works based on famous race track corners, and the portrait of Sir Stirling Moss pictured in the gallery below.
Other highlights of the show include the stunning exploded drawings of “the cutaway king” Tony Matthews and silk screen prints by Ella Freire.
“The Club has been collecting motoring art for over a century,” explains Jeremy Vaughan, Head of Motoring at the Royal Automobile Club, “ we are very proud of the collection at our Pall Mall clubhouse, which complements the collections of both the library and extensive archive. Britain has more professional motoring and motor-racing artists than any other nation and the club is delighted to showcase and help promote such talent.”
The exhibition runs until November 6 and everything on show is for sale.
