You can wonder what the meaning of an ART Corner is on this Automobile site...

 

Well, let's say that ART and AUTOMOBILES have always closely been connected.


You can find quite a number of Artists that have taken the Automobile as Model for their paintings or sculptures. You even have artists specialised in cars in Comic Strips.
For exemple:
- François Bruere
- Hideki Yoshida
- Graham Turner
- Jean Graton (Michel Vaillant strips)
- Clovis (several Posters for Automobile Events and Strips)
- Benoit Deliège 
- see www.artist-auto.com for more artists.


On the other way, some Artists have taken the Automobile as support for their oeuvre.
For exemple:
- Andy Warhol - 1979 - BMW M1 Le Mans race car
BMW M1 Warhol 

- Alexander Calder - 1975 - BMW 3.0 CSL race car
BMW CSL Calder

- Frank Stella - 1976 - BMW 3.0 CSL race car
- Roy Lichtenstein - 1977 - BMW 320i race car
- Jeff Koons - 2010 - BMW M3 GT2 race car
- see www.bmwdrives.com/artcars/bmw-artcars.php for more BMW exemples

- César (Baldaccini - French sculptor °1921  +1998)  made some car "Compressions" between 1960 and 1990 (for exemple a Peugeot 205T16 in 1986)

- In 2010, before Buell ceased their Motorcycle production, they offered a limited run of "Crushed Blast Cubes" for sale, numbered and signed by Eric Buell.

Car Show Rooms are often used to promote Artists.
Pictures, paintings and sculptures are used to upgrade the looks of Show Rooms and Garages.

 

And, are some of our nice Classic Automobiles not really a piece of art?

 

So, if you fancy it, please have a closer look at this part of our website.
If you don't like it, well, just go back to the 7RCB or Se7en section and enjoy that part.
