Racing Cars in Bright Red, Sports Illustrated Illustration - Sports Car - Pink

$ 25,000
  • Description
    Punchy reds and zestful hot pinks convey a sense of intense motion and engine heat. The art is as much as color-field painting as a narrative work. It was a commissioned illustration for Sports Illustrated Magzine via Peak's famous rep Harvy Kahn. Bob Peak shows a close-up portrait of the helmeted drive and a wide side view of the car. The wide image of the car is precisely rendered on paper and pasted to the canvas which makes this a mixed-media work. This demonstrates Peak's creativity but doing the car in inks gave the artist more exactitude to the mechanics of the car technically correct. Signed lower right. The frame is a period frame and its joints are a bit loose. The plexiglass has a few skuffs.
