Early circa 1915 painting of a race car and be-goggled driver, painted on paper or thin canvas, subsequently laid on board. An old framer's blue label suggests that the artwork spent some time in Rugby, England, but, the painting is laid on a modern day board, much newer than that outer backing would suggest. Taking into account some general wear in the field at right center, and a heavy old cigarette smoke odor close up, I do believe the painting is vintage and of the period depicted, and thus scarce and desirable. The painting measures 10 3/4" by 18", plus the narrow old gold framing, which has some small corner losses.
