‘1936 Alfa Romeo Tipo C’
A dynamic and unusually large watercolour by Walter Gotschke (German, 1912-2000) featuring the racing Alfa-Romeo Tipo C by Scuderia Ferrari, competing in the 1936 Italian Grand Prix.
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.
Signed and dated to the lower right and framed using an acid-free mount, in a plain black oak frame, and glazed.
Size: 26 x 18 inches (65 x 46 cm)
