‘Frankie’s First’ captures the unique Derby carnival atmosphere, embodying the jubilation shared by so many people in 2007 as they watched Authorized help realise the dreams of Frankie Dettori with an emphatic 5 length victory at Epsom.
Measuring 61.8cm by 50.8cm this limited edition art print is a triumph of bold colour and buoyant gesture.
"I love the idea that racing throws up of the contrast between a majestic thoroughbred and the frenzy of a roaring crowd. I felt it important with this piece to feature the brightly coloured advertising hoardings as they create the perfect foil against which I could place Authorized. Photographs of such scenes are extremely limited: one either sees the horse in focus and the crowd blurred or vice versa. The only way to see the scene I have painted is to be present".
This fine art limited edition Giclee print makes a powerful statement on any wall and is equally at home in a modern or classical interior. It is lovingly produced on 270gsm archival paper.
