Roy Nockolds 1911-1979

Self-taught aviation and motor racing artist and etcher born in London. Nockolds was attracted to motor sport on his first visit to Brooklands in 1924. He contributed to Motor Sport, Autocar and Motor, and excelled in capturing the atmosphere and technical aspects of motor racing. He applied the same skill to aviation art - his authoritative picture of the Battle of Britain, commissioned for Royal Air Force Fighter Command, is a tour de force. During World War II Nockolds served in the Air Force, developed a revolutionary camouflage for the Mosquitoes and was an Official War Artist. Immediately after the war he produced a remarkable series of near-abstract paintings depicting speed. The work offered is from this series of only 4 semi-abstract works He was a chairman of the Guild of Aviation Artists, 1975, and of The Brooklands Society, 1976. Nockolds oeuvre was diverse; he produced excellent drypoints, handpainted driver masks painted in oils on plaster, sporting prints for Frost & Reed and major commissions from Bentley, Jaguar, Aston Martin, RAC London, British Racing Drivers Club and many leading pre-war and post-war Grand Prix drivers many who were close friends including Mike Hawthorn. Graham Hill. Tazio Nuvolari. Stirling Moss to name but a few.  This is the important work I have for sale from my private collection that once included the Stirling Moss Original Shell - Mex. Maserati 250F contract, the complete Autosport Magazine Photographic Archive of Original Photographs, the near complete back catalogue of Michael Turner original paintings, drawings and illustrations 1959 - 1990. The R.A.Nockolds 1911-1979 Archive & Worldwide Copyright. R.A.Nockolds Collection of post-war drivers masks including Bugatti/Chiron. Nuvolari Alfa Romeo. Gordon F. Crosby Sketchbooks  etc.

Motor Sport Magazine: " On his day few artists could match the skill and perception of R.A.Nockolds.

Classic and Sportscar Magazine: " By the time of his death R.A.Nockolds was acknowledged as the doyen of motor racing artists, above all he was unsurpassed as the expert on the depiction of sheer speed ".

Michael Turner: " To a newcomer tramping the ciruits abroad in the late 50s, it was comforting and not a little impressive to round a corner out in the countryside and find R.A.Nockolds set up with his easel and stool at trackside, producing an on the spot painting immortalising his friends as they sped past at arms length".

The Late Duke of Richmond ( Owner of Goodwood Race Track ): " A collection of works of R.A.Nockolds must inevitably be the most important documentary of motor racing, he was a great artist for whose friendship I am ever grateful " .

NOTE: The Above Is Just A Sample Of Information Regarding R.A.Nockolds, He Is Without Doubt The Finest In His Field During The 20th Century, This Work Is Probably His Finest and Holds Its Own Against The Finest English Abstract Painters Of The Period, Painting From His Studio In South Kensington He Produced Artwork From Table Lamps, Sculpture, Drivers Masks, Mascots etc, This Work Is One Of The Finest Speed Abstract Paintings Of The Period. R.A.Nockolds was the Drivers Artist of the 20th Century Personal Friends with Racing Drivers of the Period including Richard Seaman, Mike Hawthorn, Tazio Nuvolari, Stirling Moss etc etc. His Mercedes Pre-War Artwork the finest of the period 1914 - 1938. The above work is his rarest example depicting Speed.

R.A.NOCKOLDS WAS COMISSIONED BY BY MANY IMPORTANT  COMPANIES INCLUDING MARCONI - MULLARD - SHELL - FERRARI - BOAC - BENTLEY - ROLLS ROYCE - JAGUAR - BUGATTI - ROYAL AIR FORCE - BRITISH RACING DRIVERS CLUB TO NAME JUST A FEW.
