François Bruère Completes 2013 Concours d'Elegance of America Poster Art Company press release.
Renowned French painter, François Bruère, has finished his rendition of the 2012 Concours Best of Show winners: Best of Show – American winner, a 1933 Chrysler Imperial Dual Cowl Phaeton owned by Joseph & Margie Cassini, III; and Best of Show - Foreign winner, a 1933 Delage D8S Coupe Roadster from The Patterson Collection are portrayed with The Inn at St. John's as the backdrop.
This is the second poster Bruère has created for the Concours d'Elegance of America. He has shown his work at our event many times. Bruére has been producing his unique artwork for car manufacturers and art collectors for 30 years and is considered one of the finest automobile artists in the world.
Bruère's painting goes beyond hyperrealism and expresses the temperament, the vibrations which we feel when looking, listening to or driving an automobile. His unique and very recognizable style strongly reflects the link between man and machine. From body styles with endless curves to victorious brands from the 24 Hours of Le Mans, François Bruère's artwork absorbs us into his realm where light enhances the volume, making us feel the sensations of the racetrack or sharing the elegance of the 'Concours d'Elegance.'
Updated 2013 Class List
The Concours Car Selection Committee has announced an updated Class List for the 2013 Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's. Committee Chairman Brian Joseph suggests that car owners submit their nominations soon, as the classes are filling up fast.
'We want to give exhibitors more time to plan their visit to our event,' said Joseph. 'Choosing the cars early also gives us time to design a more attractive field.'
Nomination forms can be found at our website. Forms can be printed out and faxed or mailed, or submitted on line.
Prints of François Bruère's Poster Art will be available at the next Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's on Sunday, July 28, 2013. Signed versions of his 2006 poster, along with many other past Concours posters will be available next week at the new Concours d'Elegance of America online store.
