C J Lawrence, 1950s British Racing Car

C J Lawrence, 1950s British Racing Car

An interesting mid-20th-century oil on board depicting a British racing car in full flow. The driver peers out of the window as he takes a corner at high speed.

It would be wonderful to track down some more information about this vehicle, so do let us know if you can share any of your car nerd knowledge. It’s been suggested that it could be a Riley.

The painting is housed within what appears to be its original frame and signed/dated in the lower left.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
