We here at l'art et l'automobile are proud to help celebrate the 120th birthday of il commendatore, the illustrious Enzo Ferrari, as well as the 70th anniversary of the Ferrari Brand. I in fact had the pleasure of working with him and was even in the process of writing a book of Ferrari based artwork with him shortly before he died. Obviously, without his knowledge and vision, said book could not be continued, but the art which he so gracefully wrought, in the form of his amazing machines, continues to fascinate and excite to this day. I will always remember and cherish our time together, and will always curate his legacy.
Below is a link to our collection, the Ferrari Artwork and Memorabilia that Does exist. Feel free to explore the Gallery and possibly add one of these pieces of history to your collection.
Also, please check out our Blogger Post, for which we have shared an article by IOL Motoring detailing never before seen pictures of Enzo, celebrating his 120th birthday last month.

The beginning of Automotive sculptures mirrors the development of the automobile itself. The sculptures that came out of the 1890’s and early 1900’s in Europe and America and the artwork were mainly commissioned by race organizers and manufacturers as trophies and awards. Those early pieces were orientated towards usage rather than collection to glorify the product, the driver or the event.
The Louis Vuitton/Razzia Connection.
Louis Vuitton probably does not really need any introduction. It is a pretty well known name, originally recognized for their luxury luggage with the famous LV monogram.
