Royal Automobile Club Show Is Speed on Canvas
No brakes, just brushes.
When a fast car is captured by an artist, it’s usually at 1,000 frames per second. We’re habituated to recognizing speed on film; rarely are we asked to acknowledge it on a canvas.
All of which makes the Royal Automobile Club’s Art of Motoring exhibition, on view now through Oct. 31 in London, a crash course of the most edifying kind. Have a click through some of the show’s highlights here.
