Fiat 124 Spider Abarth Rally Painting
Rallying is hugely overlooked in terms of its artistic potential most of the time, but the artist Andrea Del Pesco has realised its full potential in the form of this Fiat 124 Spider Abarth going at full whack through the countryside (see the Matt Bellamy-like cows in the rear).
The oil painting is heading for auction at Catawiki, along with a depiction of a Fiat 131 and a Lancia Stratos, so the artist is clearly a lover of historic racing! I love the slight camber you can see on the Fiat as it's coming though the corner and how the blur effect means thatthe only thing in 'focus' is the car. And those cows.
No word on a guide price, but for an original piece of art made to such a high standard I hope it goes for a fair price.
