Into the Night - Ford GT40

by Anthony Dobson

£345.00
- +

DESCRIPTION

'Into the Night - Ford GT40' is available exclusively on canvas and limited to 95 fine art prints + 9 artist proofs.

MAIN EDITION

Printed on 400gsm Fine Art Canvas, the image is wrapped around the stretcher so that it can be hung unframed.  Fitted to a stretcher and strung ready to hang.  Each print is individually signed and numbered by Anthony and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.

The canvas print is framed in a narrow black 'tray' frame.  The canvas sits inside the frame with a small gap between the edge of the canvas and the frame.  The front of the frame is level with the surface of the painting rather than the frame covering the front edge of the painting as is more usual.  This allows the frame to provide a border for the image without encroaching or dominating it.

 

 

ARTIST'S PROOF

Limited to just 9 prints, the 'Into the Night - Ford GT40' Artist's Proof is a stunning large scale stretched canvas print.

Printed on 400gsm Fine Art Canvas, the image is wrapped around the stretcher so that it can be hung unframed.  Fitted to a stretcher and strung ready to hang.  Each print is individually signed and numbered by Anthony and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.

WHAT IS AN ARTIST'S PROOF?

Traditionally an artist's proof was a print made by the artist during the print-making process in order to understand the progress of the printing plate the artist was working on.  In this respect it was a 'work in progress' print.

With the development of modern printing techniques the term is now used to refer to a number of finished prints that are available in addition to the main limited edition, and are reproduced to the same exact high quality.  The number of artist proofs should not exceed 10% of the size of the main limited edition.  The edition size of 'Into the Night - Ford GT40' is 95 prints so there are just 9 artist proofs available.   The artist proofs may be exactly the same as the main limited edition or, as is the case with 'Into the Night - Ford GT40', the artist proofs are the same size as the original painting.

Art collectors often prefer artist proofs because there are fewer of them.  For collectors of Anthony Dobson the artist's proof offers an opportunity to enjoy a print which very closely replicates the look, finish, and scale of the original painting.

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1971 Anthony's interest in Formula One meant evenings spent drawing fast cars rather than doing homework, a rebellion that paid off when his first painting sold in 1989 leading to a spate of commissions from private individuals, car manufacturers and racing personalities.

Anthony turned down a place at university to study Graphic Design in order to work on further commissions. Since then, Anthony has worked on the business side of the art world as framer, printer and publisher. Working commercially with artists and building up portfolios for clients cannot have failed to add to his keen eye for colour, line and form.

With a flair for the commercial, technological and creative side of art it is not surprising that Formula One has remained an obsession – a sport that embodies the ultimate fusion of cutting- edge technology, physical fitness and high-octane glamour. Working exclusively in oils, Anthony paints a moment in time on the track, capturing that split second where a car passes the spectator with such speed that the surrounding landscape seems to elongate as if pulled along by the sheer power of the car.

Detailed but not overworked Anthony uses paint in such a way that it carries the smell and sounds of the track, the grip of the tyres, the stress of the engines, the pressure of competing on the edge.
