1970s Mike Mosley Original Ron Burton Artwork.
This unique piece of artwork is from the Ron Burton collection and was one of his ‘works in progress’ that the artist never quite got to finish. Even so, we at Hall of Fame Collection think that this adds to the work and shows some of Ron’s methods used when composing a work. The work depicts the very popular IndyCar driver Mike Mosley. The Oklahoma born driver was a good friend of Ron Burton and had Burton paint some of his race helmets during his career. The image has helmeted, bespectacled Mosley sitting in the cockpit of his machine. It is painted in vibrant acrylic colors and is on a 20 x 16 stretched canvas. This is the first time this great work has been publicized. This would look fantastic to hang amongst any IndyCar collection.
Comes with a full Certificate of Authenticity.
This work comes from the famous Ron Burton Collection. Burton was a famous Indiana artist who often traded his paintings with drivers for one of their helmets. He also completed many commissioned works for race teams, drivers, and Indianapolis businesses and eateries many of which are still on display to this day.
