ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

Roy Nockolds (1911-1979)

'1958 Le Mans, Aston Martin DB3S, Graham Whitehead’.

An important and extremely atmospheric original oil on canvas, depicting the 1958 Le Mans, with the legendary Aston Martin DB3S number 5 of driver Graham Whitehead, braking hard into Arnage curve in the rain at night, hard on the heels of the Lotus 15 driven by Graham Hill. Signed by the artist lower right and dated 1958. Framed with a reeded Art Deco style black lacquered frame with linen slip and glazed.

Size: 37 x 32 inches (94 x 81 cm) overall.

This painting was commissioned by Graham Whitehead after his heroic efforts at Le Mans in 1958. It resided in his and his half-brother Peter’s collection until the mid-1990s, where it remained until we acquired it, recently. A paper label accompanying the piece indicates that it was no.18 in the Whitehead brothers’ private art collection.

Provenance:
Commissioned by Graham Whitehead in 1958, following his famous 2nd place at Le Mans.
Whitehead Collection 1958-1998 (evidenced by attached Whitehead inventory label).
Private Collection until acquired by Pullman Gallery.
