Iconic image captured on canvas

Scottish Contemporary Artist Jonathan Mitchell has donated an original Oil painting of Sir Jackie Stewart racing at the 1969 German Grand Prix in the Matra MS80.

The Painting was commissioned in co-operation with our President Sir Jackie Stewart to raise fund and awareness for Dyslexia Scotland.

Jonathan says ‘ I have had the pleasure of meeting Sir Jackie a couple of times now. My first brief meeting was at the 2012 Grand Prix at Silverstone. It was here that the idea of producing a “racing” painting was hatched’

The painting will be on display at a number of events between now and Dyslexia Awareness Week in November, when it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Checkout our Website, Facebook and Twitter pages, details of where you can view the painting will be available shortly.

Make sure you see it, before it’s snapped up.
