A Limited Edition of 100 prints
I've been thinking of doing an E-type since I started this series of paintings, but couldn't decide which model to do - then I saw 9600 HP at the Windsor Concours and was hooked.
9600 HP, sometimes called 'The most famous car in the World', is the legendary E-type prototype that was used for high speed testing on the M1, achieved 150mph in an Autocar test and was driven flat out to Geneva to star at the '61 show. The history and prototype features of the car make it unique but also relevant to all E-type enthusiasts.
Owner Philip Porter of Porter Press kindy provided the photographic reference for the painting and descriptive text which is etched into the Aluminium panel.
As the car is such as symbol of 60's design the composition incorporates sketches to highlight Malcolm Sayer's aerodynamic but soulful curves and RAF roundels.
The prints are produced using an ultra-fine inkjet printing process onto a 3mm Aluminium composite panel. The ink is dried by UV and has excellent archival quality. The print is frameless but fitted with a sub-frame so it appears to float above the wall and is easy to hang.
Just 100 prints are being produced in two sizes.
The 70 x 35cm prints are signed, numbered and titled on specially made Aluminium plates which are riveted to the front of the print.
The 35 x 17.5cm print is hand signed and numbered.
Both come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
