This is an ink (Staedler fine-line pen) sketch on Canson 300gsm paper – a commissioned Greeting Card, featuring  one of THE marques of the French motor racing industry – Talbot Lago.    This particular 1950’s car is a T 25 GS model and was raced successfully at Le Mans – winning in fact, in the early 50’s,  by the Rosier Father and Son team.   With it’s large engine capacity,  lack of powered steering and treaded tyres, it must have been quite some handful to drive on the demanding Le Mans circuit.  Thanks to Bill Kinchella for the background material on this wonderful, alas now gone,  marque.Blue Jag drwg (2)Commissions accepted.   Please e-mail me at:- motoring-art@orange.fr for further info.
