Frederick Gordon Crosby (1885-1943)

A highly unusual original watercolour on board of a period fire truck with trailer racing to the scene of a fire, painted in Crosby’s trademark dynamic style. Signed to the lower left and dated 1942. Framed with an acid-free mount, within an angular section gold-leaf frame and glazed.

Size overall: 31 x 25 inches (79 x 64 cm).

Frederick Gordon Crosby is considered amongst the greatest motoring artists of the last century. Regarded as the pre-eminent, pioneer British automotive and aeronautical artist, he was responsible for some of the most striking and dramatic motor-racing and aviation paintings and illustrations of the era.

This 1942 work was one of his last, and probably published in ‘Autocar’ magazine.
