More About this Item


Description: THOMAS M. HOYNE
American (1924-1989)
(Group of 25 Paintings)
Original Illustrations of Vintage Automobiles

mixed media, signed.
13 1/4 x 17 7/8 inches (sight, each)

Provenance: Alexander Gallery, New York, New York; Corporate Collection, acquired from the above in 1994.

Other Notes: The following lot of 25 paintings by Thomas Hoyne depicts automobiles from 1901-1937. The automobiles illustrated in the paintings were part of the William F. Harrah (Harrah's Casino) collection. By the time of his death in 1978, Bill Harrah had assembled the largest and most historically significant collection of antique cars in the world. In total, his collection reached approximately 1,400 vehicles. Most of his automobiles were sold in the 1980s but his legacy lives on at the National Automobile Museum. One can assume that Mr. Harrah hired Thomas Hoyne (well known for his illustrations of fishing and sailing vessels) to paint some of his favorite cars for him. This is an intriguing collection of artworks of pre-war automobiles and an historical documentation of the automobile industry.
