“The Crowd”

I am intrigued by Wyndham Lewis; the founder of the Vorticism movement of the early 1910s in the UK.  It’s been less than 24 hours since I discovered the art and writings of this fine man, yet I am thoroughly fascinated.  I have always been taken by the exhuberant Italian Futurism movement of those times, and Mr. Lewis’ adventures seem like the UK’s answer to those Futurist claims.  In addition to being a superb artist, Lewis also wrote several books and literary pieces.  More on Wyndham Lewis in a future IEDEI post.

this painting is entitled “The Crowd”:

art: Leonello Design.

Leonello Design is a design company affiliated with the likes of Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, Zagato, and Touring Superleggera—-working on scale models and designs for them and other projects.

I’m not sure if any of them are available as prints or not, as not much is mentioned on their site.

the illustrations of Peter Hutton.

These are very cool and very original.  I especially love the way he annotates information about the cars above the angular cutaway sketches.  The Maserati 250 T-shirt is quite nice, although too red for me to order unfortunately.  Prints and cards are quite affordable—a nice place to pick up a few gifts for yourself or a petrolhead in your lives.

Artist of the day: Xander Walker

Xander Walker (http://strassenversion.blogspot.com) is someone I have known for a while through The Auto Union community.  A few weeks ago, a bunch of us met up for a dinner in Manhattan, and Xander introduced us to his fantastic artwork.  I was blown away by the uniqueness and individualistic style of these paintings; and I can firmly say that they are WELL worth the humble $15 to $30 asking price he has put up for the pieces.  Each one is hand signed, and perfect for framing.  Speaking of which, I need to find time to get to a framing shop to buy a suitable frame for the 2 paintings I own by him.  Each painting is hand finished and limited edition.   Each piece is 24 x 17″ and packaged well!

In addition to the Alpine A110 pictured above (which obviously i DO have!!), here are some others available from Xander’s Etsy store:

art of the day. atlantic.

in honor of the recently auctioned and  record setting $30 million BUGATTI TYPE  57SC ATLANTIC (Atlantique) which was owned by the late car collector and neurologist Dr. Peter Williamson

I met Dr. Williamson once, and he showed me around his Bugatti Type 35B.  He was a gentleman and a good guy.  Sad to see his Bugatti collection now being parted out after his death…

i’m not sure who the artist of this great piece is…
