A rare to find print by the artist
Dion Pears* (1929-1985) of Barry Sheene on the
1980 Akai Texaco Yamaha TZ 750, clearly signed
in pencil by Barry Sheene.
These prints were amongst a batch
of 8000 various prints bought at auction about
28 years ago when Quorn Fine Arts ceased trading,
whereby they had paid the personalities, in this
case Barry Sheene to sign them. There was about
100 signed by Sheene and about 600 un-signed.
Since then, they have been kept in storage.
This is one of three prints that
we have acquired and currently have for sale.
Size: 20inch x 15inch, Image size 16.5inch x 11inch.
Condition: Very Good.
Comes complete with COA.
