Price Code: ££££
A rare and important bronze sculpture by the famed motoring artist Frederick Gordon Crosby depicting a car being driven at speed, with driver and co-driver side by side, fixed in intense concentration. The car is set on a textured bronze sôcle and mounted on a figured marble base with swept edge.
Crosby observed features from cars by Riley, ERA and MG, and combined them as the inspiration for the vehicle featured in this bronze. Another example of this bronze appears in the John J. Zolomij book The Motor Car in Art (p. 140) and the bronze was also used as the Brooklands Trials Championship Trophy.
