If you’re at the Pebble Beach Concours this Sunday, the best preserved most legendary cars in the world will have come from around the world to you. So has come the latest work from the most brilliant automotive fine artists.
What you are about to see is the spectacle of art that explores and dramatizes the essence of automotive art.
Above *Lincoln Zephyr* by Tom Hale; a Lincoln Zephyr with an otherworldly background of orange, purple, green and blue swirls. Reflections play on the body of the car to add hypnotizing detail.
When you and your entourage enter the Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, the big tent is right there. It’s the tent the Automotive Fine Art Society (AFAS) has used to debut their new work for thirty years. In fact, for exactly 30 years, so this is its glorious anniversary.
Inside the tent this year will be 22 AFAS members personally exhibiting their latest work to those who stop to look, get enthralled, and discuss.
Automotive-Art represents and sells art for many of the leading AFAS artists. Here is a sneak preview of some of their work to be revealed.
Ken Eberts is the president of AFAS. To celebrate 30th years, Lincoln Motor Company commissioned him to create this piece. Entitled “A New Star is Born,” it commemorates the 75th anniversary of the original Lincoln Continental, and the creation of the 2016 Continental Concept. Ken uses his own 1956 Continental Mk II in the piece. See available Ken Eberts prints.
Charles Maher: “Rolls Jewelry” depicts the front of a late 20s Rolls Royce. The close up allows the viewer to explore details of the driving lamps, radiator shell and radiator cap and emblem. See Charles Maher prints available now.
“188.8.131.52,” by Klaus Wagger illustrates the epic battle between the two dominating drivers of the time, Caracciola and Rosemeyer, for the German Grand Prix in 1937 at Nürburgring. The two celebrated racers are shown driving a Mercedes W125 and an Auto Union Type C, wildly whipping through the narrow roads of the track.
