This painting is of the "Sharknose" Ferrari 156 of Wolfgang von Trips in 1961..number 40.
I wanted to paint a scene with the beauty of the Sharknose and the colours and excitement
of the Monaco Grand Prix.
I researched many photos of the same day with the same meccanics in different photos.
I wanted to paint a original view point from all of my research and so this is my own composition.
I found this view of the Sharknose which depicts the beauty of the car.
My father saw Von Trips race at Monza later that year where sadly von Trips died.
Painting dimensions - 80cm x 60cm
