Description: Scene at LeMans

Comment: Mostly recognized in the relatively small world of vintage auto racing art, Gotschke was a German illustrator who worked for many American clients. He was also successful in selling his originals at galleries across the U.S. and Europe. Compare the painting to the magazine reproduction... In reproduction the scene is truer to the actual events. After publication, the work was altered by Gotschke to raise the level of drama for gallery shoppers. A copy of the magazine accompanies the artwork.
