An Italian Job
Giclée print on Somerset Velvet watercolor paper. (Original is acrylic on watercolor board)

An Alfa Romeo Tipo 8C-35 was driven by the great Nuvolari to a miraculous victory at the Coppa Cieno. Contemporarily described as his finest drive ever, Nuvolari retired his Alfa Romero Tipo C 12C-36 after only two laps with a broken transaxle. Novolari arrived back at the pits on foot and had Pintacuda in his works 8C-35 pulled in. By the time Nuvolari got away in a car which did not fit him at all well, he was seven laps down on the entire field. Driving like a man possessed, Nuvolari overtook all his team mates, and the the rest of the opposition, including the entire Auto Union team, to an unbelievable win.


Artist Notes:
"The handsome Alfa Romeo Tipo 8C-35 was designed to take on the might of Mercedes in the mid 1930s, but despite having the talents of Nuvolari on the team, Alfa never quite succeeded in this ambition.

I saw this 8C-35 in the paddock at Silverstone during Coys International Historic Festival. The afternoon sunlight picked out the wonderful Alfa red and yellow from the shadows in the pit garage."
