CLEWORTH: An ARTFULLlife is an amazing coffee table book for automobile aficionados. Chronicling the work of world-renowned artist, Harold Cleworth, this book takes us on a captivating visual journey though the illustrious career of a man called the “painter laureate of the car”.With a profession that started at Decca Records, creating album covers for then newcomers Rolling Stones and The Who, Cleworth has had two incredibly successful careers, this book focuses on the second – that of an automobile portrait artist.Original automobile paintings that use his trademark technique of “super-realism” decorate the walls of celebrity’s homes such as Jay Leno, Nicolas Cage, and John Schneider. With such photo-like quality to his pieces, it is no surprise that he was commissioned by automotive giants Chevrolet, Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Isuzu, and Saab to paint originals of their newest models. In addition to corporations, Cleworth has been commissioned by international private collectors to paint portraits of their automobiles. As a result of the high demand for his paintings, he typically only paints six or seven a year!CLEWORTH: An ARTFULLlife is the first publication to feature Harold Cleworth’s collection of highly coveted artwork to date, and is a must have for collectors of both art and automobiles.

Great archival ,everyone has memories of at least a few of these autos and landmark places . A really beautiful coffee table book for all. Who doesn't have a love of these unique and amazing designs. Only in America. Loved it from cover to cover.

As a kid growing up in San Francisco, I had a Harold James Cleworth Retrofuturism Pink Cadillac Limited Edition Lithograph with Harold James Cleworth Original Signature with artist's actual thumbprint and original hand sketched re-marking with a Cadillac Logo hanging over my bed. My Aunt had purchased it in the Haight Ashbury and I literally woke up to it every day. It made me happy.Much later in life, I spent some time in Venice Beach, California and met a wonderful man named "Harold" who was "an artist." I enjoyed running into Harold in those days, he always has a smile on his face, a quick wit and a way of making you feel welcome. It was months before we both put it togehter that this very man that I call my friend was the same person who created this piece of art that as a kid I loved.I now live in another part of the world and I don't get to see or talk to Harold that much any more. But I'm so honored to have this book as part of my library. I am so honored by his friendship and so humbled and enamored by his incredible depth of work.Do yourself a favor and hit the BUY NOW button and own a part of history. Harold and his body of work are both treasures.

This is a fabulous book for those who love beautiful cars painted with better than photographic precision

Great book Harold. I gave it to Jen for her birthday, she'll be looking for an autograph soon.
