An original watercolour heightened with gouache, signed by the artist lower right. Framed with a stepped, double thick acid-free mount, and glazed with a fluted black oak frame.
Gotschke, chief illustrator for Automobile Quarterly and Road and Track, was described by the latter as “the maestro of capturing cars in motion”. The editor of Automobile Quarterly, Scott Bailey, was a great fan of Gotschke’s work and the publication featured an unprecedented two major features of Gotschke paintings, in 1971 and in 1989. Today, opportunities to acquire original paintings by Gotschke are exceedingly rare.
