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.
