Silver Arrows vs. Scuderia Ferrari Watercolor by Alfredo de For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 22 January 2021. Estimate:$3,500 - $5,000 Alfredo de la MaríaWatercolor on paper30.5 × 24.5 in.1988 Enzo Ferrari once said that “race cars are neither ugly nor beautiful. They become beautiful when they win.”Surely this sentiment rang true after his team's first defeat at the hands of the legendary Silver Arrows of the late 1930s. This fantastic depiction by Alfredo de la María captures the raw power of an Auto Union Type C outpacing the Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo 8C 35, with a Mercedes-Benz W 125 looming in the background. De la María wonderfully illustrates the end of Scuderia Ferrari’s grand prix success against the Auto Union’s quick rise to power and Mercedes-Benz’s imminent motorsport dominance.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az21.
