Future Retro: The Great Age of the American Automobile

Event Details:
May 14, 2013 - September 8, 2013
Location: The Minerva and Raymond K. Mason Gallery; The Joan Wellhouse and Martin Stein, Sr. Gallery and The Mr. and Mrs. Samuel A. Millner Gallery

       

L-SE 1046.1.10, Richard Arbib (1917–1995), Cyclar Mark IV "Mopod" Vehicle Proposal, 1979, Ink, gouache and graphite pencil with collage elements on illustration board, 23 7/8 x 30 3/4 x 1 1/8 in., Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection. 

 

This exhibition, comprised mainly of drawings from the collection of Frederick A. Sharf, showcases the beauty and ingenuity of American automotive design during the decades following World War II, a landmark period in car styling. An eclectic mix of illustrations, from preliminary sketches to fully rendered works, provides a rare glimpse into the creative process at some of America’s premiere car companies. Dating from an era when speed and power were increasingly important factors in automotive sales, these drawings show reference to the emerging technologies that influenced postwar car design, like airplanes and rockets. Featured along with these two-dimensional works will be seven classic automobiles, organized by Bill Warner, Founder and Chairman of Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.  The cars included in the exhibition: 1963 Chrysler Turbine, 1961 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport, 1957 Cadillac El Dorado Biarritz, 1963 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster, 1956 Continental Mark II, and a 1956 Firedbird II.  

This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

L-SE 1046.1.10, Richard Arbib (1917–1995), Cyclar Mark IV "Mopod" Vehicle Proposal, 1979, Ink, gouache and graphite pencil with collage elements on illustration board, 23 7/8 x 30 3/4 x 1 1/8 in., Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection. 

 

This exhibition, comprised mainly of drawings from the collection of Frederick A. Sharf, showcases the beauty and ingenuity of American automotive design during the decades following World War II, a landmark period in car styling. An eclectic mix of illustrations, from preliminary sketches to fully rendered works, provides a rare glimpse into the creative process at some of America’s premiere car companies. Dating from an era when speed and power were increasingly important factors in automotive sales, these drawings show reference to the emerging technologies that influenced postwar car design, like airplanes and rockets. Featured along with these two-dimensional works will be seven classic automobiles, organized by Bill Warner, Founder and Chairman of Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.  The cars included in the exhibition: 1963 Chrysler Turbine, 1961 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport, 1957 Cadillac El Dorado Biarritz, 1963 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster, 1956 Continental Mark II, and a 1956 Firedbird II.  

This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

L-SE 1046.1.10, Richard Arbib (1917–1995), Cyclar Mark IV "Mopod" Vehicle Proposal, 1979, Ink, gouache and graphite pencil with collage elements on illustration board, 23 7/8 x 30 3/4 x 1 1/8 in., Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection. 

 

This exhibition, comprised mainly of drawings from the collection of Frederick A. Sharf, showcases the beauty and ingenuity of American automotive design during the decades following World War II, a landmark period in car styling. An eclectic mix of illustrations, from preliminary sketches to fully rendered works, provides a rare glimpse into the creative process at some of America’s premiere car companies. Dating from an era when speed and power were increasingly important factors in automotive sales, these drawings show reference to the emerging technologies that influenced postwar car design, like airplanes and rockets. Featured along with these two-dimensional works will be seven classic automobiles, organized by Bill Warner, Founder and Chairman of Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.  The cars included in the exhibition: 1963 Chrysler Turbine, 1961 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport, 1957 Cadillac El Dorado Biarritz, 1963 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster, 1956 Continental Mark II, and a 1956 Firedbird II.  

This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
