Automotive Art - part 8

This series features automotive art and illustration beginning in the 1880s, in the very early days of motoring, through to the mid-1960s. Mainly in poster form, that either advertised motor cars and car-related products, or promoted motor-racing events like Grand Prix.

It features many famous and iconic brands, as well as some that have fallen by the wayside.

This is part 8 (the final part) of an 8-part series on automotive art. Hope you have enjoyed it. Coming up next - the English artist famous for his animal paintings (and the lions in Trafalgar Square), Sir Edwin Landseer.
