The 1951 January issue of ‘Das Auto’ shows the beautiful impression of a Mercedes 170S driving up a snowy mountain road, illustrated by Walter Gotschke. Like in many of his drawings and paintings, he tells a little story. Here obviously…
Skilled craftsmen, artists and designers shaped the bodywork of the automobile since the early days of motoring.
Professional artists, illustrators, photographers and sculptors were commissioned to visualize these creations again, mostly for commercial purposes like adverts, posters or sales catalogues.
These artworks express the zeitgeist of the automobile in it's historical and cultural context, and can be compiled into an individual category of art - Automotive Art.
The aim is to create an overview over the historical development of Automotive Art and highlight the most important milestones of car design and it's artistic interpretations in applied and fine arts.
We feature artwork and automobilia from our collection, and we share paintings, sketches and photography from our art studio.
