Savoy Automobile Museum is proud to own two commissioned pieces by famed artist Robert Carter. Read an excerpt below from an article about Robert Carter from Automobilia Resource magazine:
Robert Carter grew up in London, England. When he was 13 years old, he went to the Tate Gallery in London on an educational school outing and fell in love with art. He didn’t want to leave, and his schoolteacher not only allowed him to wander the gallery for several hours but fanned this spark of interest by arranging and encouraging him to take many more field trips to numerous museums and art galleries throughout the city.
At age 15 he was an apprentice in a commercial art studio in the highly charged world of 1960s London, working in black and white airbrush and yearning to work in color.
Recent sales include the 4’x6′ “Indy Winning Lotus” acquired by the Drummond Collection in Indiana. Two pieces were commissioned by the Savoy Automobile Museum (SavoyMuseum.org) celebrating the racing history of Georgia. All were sourced from his advertisements in Automobilia Resource magazine.
