“Zanardi and Vasser Domination” artist signed Original water and pencil art by George Bartell
Art actual size 30” x 18”. Framed size 34 ¾” x 22 ½”

Peter Brock, world renowned automotive designer, met artist George Bartell when they both attended Art Center College of Design in the mid ‘50s. Years later when Brock was creating Cobra ads for Shelby American and had no cars to photograph, Brock hired Bartell to “create” cars via his artwork. Those ads have become iconic symbols of the era.

While visiting Bartell in his Southern California home in 2008, Bartell turned over his private collection to Brock to manage as he saw fit. Bartell passed away March 23, 2013 and Brock is now offering these amazing pieces of original art to the public, with proceeds benefitting the Bartell family.

It’s art you love the moment you see it and that you appreciate more each day. As George explains: "The brain is amazing. You just give it an idea and it will fill in the rest." Never ‘overworked’, some of George's best art is of the automotive industry, in which he is best known and respected.

The inspiration for this piece was the 1998 domination of the CART series by Alex Zanardi and Jimmy Vasser for Chip Ganassi’s Target Team. Zanardi won the Championship that year with an impressive 7 race wins. Vasser was the next big winner with 3 wins. Little did anyone realize what fate lay ahead for Zanardi in F1 less than 3 years later. This piece captures an important historical point in time.

This piece is true Bartell… striking colors and art pencil details that unlock more images the more you look. There are three portraits each of Zanardi and Vasser, including them holding their trophies high. As you look more closely you’ll see checkered flags, Honda symbols and more. This is a truly striking piece of original art by one of America’s masters.

This art piece is signed by Bartell followed by the AFAS insignia which Bartell proudly included to indicate he is a member of the elite Automotive Fine Arts Society, a small group of painters and sculptors who are recognized for their portrayals of the automobile.

This art, created using water colors and pens and whatever else was within arm’s reach of the dynamic Bartell, is painted on heavyweight illustration board. The art is professionally framed, mounted on top of an acid free matt so the entire piece, including its depth, is visible. Spacers were then placed in the high quality black wooden frame between the matt and the high quality Plexiglas top so the piece stands proud of its background. Viewers will know they’re looking at an original piece.

This art comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by automotive designer Peter Brock (photo seen here of Brock autographing certificate), stating that he personally received the art from the artist at Bartell’s home in 2008 and that it is being offered for sale for the first time this March 2013. The certificate also contains a picture of the artwork and states the medium of the art and the size of the art itself and with the framing.

This is a rare opportunity to own an original by one of America’s most respected automotive artists!
