‘1967 Targa Florio' by Dexter Brown, 1980

Dexter Brown (British, born 1942): ‘1967 Targa Florio, Guichet & Muller, Ferrari P4’.

Original painting, acrylic on board, signed and dated 1980. Framed within a plain black oak frame, and unglazed.

Size: 55 x 55 inches (140 x 140 cm).

The Targa Florio was one of the first and most challenging automobile endurance races. The event was founded in 1906 by Vincenzo Florio, a car enthusiast and businessman, and by the 1920s it had grown in popularity to being a major event in the motor racing calendar. The circuit of the Madonie Mountains near Palermo, Sicily with its hairpin bends and unmade roads, by 1977 - in a new era of safety – was deemed too dangerous and the event was discontinued. Today the Rally Targa Florio is still held every May in Palermo, but strictly as a showcase event, for lovers of classic and historic cars.
