Prototype Sports Car Concept Art
Boston: circa 1953. Tempera on paper. Initialled "R.S.W." Mounted circular label, lower right. Image size (including text): 15 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches. Framed. 22 7/8 x 26 3/4 inches.
Handsome 1950s sports car design.
All of our present information about this drawing comes from a label on the back of the piece, which indicates that it comes from the archives of the A.J. White Motor Vehicle Research Company - designers of exotic cars in the Boston, MA area. We have not discovered any further information about the A. J. White Research Company thus far, nor about the artist, R.S.W. of this particular drawing. There does not appear to be any connection to the great White truck manufacturer. The drawing itself is especially nice, its cool red sportscar positioned diagonally between two details in blue, in a way that makes it appear anxious to move.
