Rob Ijbema’s impressionist style of artwork caught our eye several years ago as it captures the momentary, sensory effect of a racing scene and its action. Ijbema of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is a very prolific artist, whose subject is mostly racing art that he exhibits for sale on his website called Car -A-Day. He updates his site often, sometimes daily, and his work sells quickly. Ijbema’s art has also been featured in a number of publications.
Nazzaro – FIAT – Targa Florio 1907 (above) is one of more than half a dozen recent pre-war paintings he has done, and if you are skillful about dropping the right hints to the right person, it could be under your tree for Christmas. Check out Car-A-Day where you can see all of his work and contact him, it’s worth the trip.
