Lancaster Insurance is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of one of the greatest British Films ever made – The Italian Job of ‘’69 – with Art by Bex.
Bex has created Exclusive Artworks celebrating 50 years of The Italian Job with the stunt drivers that appeared in the original 1969 Italian Job film!
The Mini car stunts were ground breaking at the time and all orchestrated by the ‘best in the business’, French ‘Star’ Rémy Julienne. Bex has captured the excitement and spirit of these stunt drivers as they made these Coopers ‘fly’ around back streets of Turin, through the shopping arcades, down the Cathedral steps, through sewers, across the weir and leaping off the tops on the buildings.
With NO safety nets in 1969, these drivers had to get it right first time!
Bex has captured these exciting stunt scenes within her Italian Job Art Collection and just 50 artworks have been created!
Bex travelled to Paris with her artwork to meet with Rémy personally at his home, it was a real honor to meet this ‘dare devil’ professional, who is almost 90 years of age!
Each limited edition artwork is individually numbered and has been personally signed by the original stunt drivers, Rémy Julienne, David Salamone and John Morris.
