Alfredo De la Maria - Mirabeau


Alfredo De La Maria was born in the Republic Oriental des Uruguay during the 1940's.

He studied art in the Bellas Artes School in Montevideo. At that time he also studied architecture. When he was 18 he illustrated the politics and sports events in the most important newspaper of Montevideo. In 1961 he had his first exhibition of equestrian paintings in Punta del Este City.

Alfredo De La Maria studies about polo are legendary in Uruguay where he also is known for his portrayal of naval subjects. He later moved to Paris where he stayed for three years and then he returned to Montevideo before travelling to Argentina where he illustrated for more than ten years the covers of several magazines.

He became totally devoted to automotive art and in 1989 he had the first of his many exhibitions in the Buenos Aires Classic Cars Club. He quickly became known all over the world as a very talented painter and a master of the oils. His incredible technique combines the dramatic realism with a distinctive impressionist quality.


Mirabeau is a Limited Edition Print that is available on both paper and canvas. Fangio in the Alfa Romeo158 leads Etancelin's Talbot-Lago and Bob Gerard's E.R.A. past the Hotel Mirabeau. Half the field had already been wiped out in the multiple crash following Farina's spin at Tabac on the opening lap, thus allowing Fangio an easy win, to give him the first of his 24 F1 victories and give Alfa Romeo their third win at Monaco.
