The art of uk motoring artists

Tipper Claude

Year working: 1907 - ?

Raced a few cars just pre-war, but best known for racing the Monaco 500cc racing car in 1949 and 1950. Won sprints at Weston Super Mare and other venues. In the 1960’s he would sell his paintings to competitors at race meetings often working from photographs. Exhibited two paintings at a H. R. Owen exhibition of motoring art (date unknown circa 1974 ?). Believe most of his work was unsigned. Lots 70&71 in Sotheby's sale 23rd Sept. 98 are examples.
