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.
