Peter Hearsey is a world-renowned motorsport artist whose work, well-known to Duke customers, captures the speed, passion and power of two and four-wheeled action.
It was at Silverstone that Formula One was born, and this wonderful painting freezes in time forever the moment when modern Grand Prix racing burst into life at the 1950 British Grand Prix.
The painting is a riot of colour which conveys the explosive start to a new era, showing legends like Juan Manuel Fangio, Guiseppe Farina, Luigi Fagioli and Reg Parnell in a field dominated by Alfa Romeos and Maseratis.
This print, limited to just 850, celebrates a golden era of motor racing, as well as one of the most important moments – The Birth of Formula One.
As with all Peter Hearsey’s prints, each is individually signed by the artist.
