ATMOSPHERE AND LIGHT: The Automotive Paintings of Barry Rowe

BARRY ROWE AND GARY DOYLE    Book Number: 85547    Product format: Hardback

Special numbered editions limited to 1,500 copies, each has been hand numbered and personally autographed by both the artist and author and comes in a smart British racing green clothbound slipcase with tipped in illustration of a sportscar driving on a wet night to the front. The front cover shows two antique sportscars, the Fangio and Hawthorne with Juan Manuel Fangio in his Maserati 250S leading Mike Hawthorne in his Ferrari in the 1957 German Grand Prix. They finished first and second. Barry Rowe paints his historic subjects with an Art Deco feel entirely in keeping with his favourite era of the 1920s and 1930s. Crowd scenes particularly interest him which he finds more compelling than portraying cars alone in a static setting or racing past at speed. Whether a grand touring car on an open road in Europe or a chaotic competition scene, we love the flying start of the Monaco 2000, a gleaming red Maserati in Monterey, the Rivera feel of the Beau Rivage Hotel with sports cars on the classic street circuit in the 1952 Monaco Grand Prix. One painting entitled Beauty and the Beast shows a D-type and E-type Jaguar juxtaposed with a rustic garage, the high-tech cars gleam in the muted surroundings of the landscape and a tree shadows the bodywork and foreground. Hence the title of this splendid artbook, Atmosphere and Light. A pack of Bugattis, Monaco Elegance where the star is the Delahaye 1936 Torpedo Cabriolet with elegantly dressed ladies and gentlemen in the grounds of a glamorous house party, The Shooting Party, Italian villages, countryside sweeping by plus Art Deco posters, there must be no less than 78 full and part page colour reproductions. 156 glossy pages, 11¼" square.
