MEDIUM: GRAPHITE & INK ON ARTBOARD
In 1975 the artist was honored to be invited by the Harrah 's Automobile Collection to photograph and illustrate selected autombiles from Bill Harrah's massive collection in Reno, Nevada. This was prior to the passing of Mr. Harrah in 1978 and the subsequent sale and break-up of much of his fabulous collection.
Fortunately the "crown jewels" of the Harrah's collection, including the 1936 Mercedes-Benz 500K Special Roadster, can still be seen at the National Automobile Museum, The Harrah Collection, in Reno, Nevada.
This single view Illustrated Portrait features a 3/4 driver front with a chateau in the background. The original Illustration was returned to the artist and is now part of my collection
