Ferrari Motorsport Collection

Great Britain’s Dexter Brown is one of the world’s foremost motorsports artists, with a career spanning 50 years.

“The only thing I have never done is still life — if it doesn’t move, I don’t paint it!”
Born in 1942, Dexter never wanted to do anything else but paint. By the age of eight he was painting in oils and, during studies at the Harrow School of Art, discovered a passion for cars and motor racing.
A many splendored painter of moving light, Dexter Brown made his name with several different, often contrasting styles. He uses a variety of media: initial drawings in pencil, sometimes with color from crayon or gouache, and larger studies in acrylic or oils on board and canvas.
Famed for the light-spattered and implicitly violent style of his impressionistic racing work, he has also won recognition as a portrait painter in the worlds of high society, theater and rock music.
With his early period in the 1960s, his works were hung on the walls of the Steering Wheel Club in London, which resulted in many sales and commissions for motor racing posters.
During the 1970s, Brown took a stronger interest in portrait studies and committing the pop music scene to canvas, with fewer automotive paintings.
In the 1980s Dexter Brown returned to the motoring scene with commissions from major motor manufacturers: Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Rolls-Royce and British Leyland.
The demand for his art continues to grow on both sides of the Atlantic. This recent Ferrari motorsport collection reimagines his event posters from the ‘60s and ‘70s, printed on 100% cotton paper in large format: over 3 ft. tall by 2 ft. wide.
