Join Donald Osborne on Thursday, January 26 in Palm Desert, CA at Heather James Fine Art for a book signing, discussion and drinks.
Osborne, curator of the exhibition ‘Ferrari and Futurists – An Italian Look at Speed’ at Heather James Fine Art, will be on hand to sign copies of the book which are on sale at the gallery.
The exhibition showcases four vintage Ferraris from the collection of Don and Carol Murray that encapsulate the speed, emotion, and personal connection of Ferrari.
The attraction the Futurists had for all things mechanical, powerful and fast certainly could be seen in the creations of a brand that has arguably the very definition of speed and beauty: Ferrari. It is hardly a stretch to make the connection- this Italian artistic movement began with the 1909 manifesto of Marinetti, a poet and editor, and quickly embraced the vigor, power, imagination and above all else the speed represented by machines and how they reflected a truly ‘modern’ life.
