The Scot's Italian Job - Artwork
The 1969 Italian Grand Prix at the ‘Temple of Speed’ Monza is a breathtaking example of tight finishes as eight cars swapped positions in the closing laps, depicted in the Fine Art Print as Jackie Stewart won in the Matra-Ford to clinch the first of this three world championship titles, with three races still remaining that year.
Depicted here the closest 1-2-3-4 finish in Formula 1 History. At the flag, Jackie Stewart, Jochen Rindt, Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Bruce McLaren were separated by just nineteen hundredths of a second, an incredible spectacle and, at the time, the closest ever F1 finish.
Sir Jackie Stewart and Matra-Ford claimed both the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ titles, with three races of the season still remaining.

magic behind our work
Research and Concept
Every image created is based on a real-life historic event. To ensure accuracy, extensive research is carried out to piece together every last detail. In-house concept artists, then, work up several visual ideas – using different views, settings, and perspectives – before a final design is settled upon.
3D Modelling and 3D scanning
Once the concept is established, a 3D model is created using computer-generated imagery. Studying every piece of reference material available, Automobilists’ artists, then, digitally rebuild the vehicle from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer with painstaking detail – even down to the last coat of paint.
With pre-production complete, it’s time to go on-location and start shooting photographs. This stage can last for several days and involves crews of up to 70 people, depending on the concept. The highest grade of professional equipment is used to ensure the highest quality and resolution images, and extensively detailed sets are also built when required.
The last step in the production process involves consolidating the digital assets to form the final artwork. In this phase, the 3D elements are rendered with the photoshoot imagery, and to this composite, additional elements – such as light, smoke, shadows, dirt, flames, and weather – are added, to bring the piece to life. Only with these details included it is time to print and frame.
