contacts with a many poignant Pop Art exponents of their time. On
his initiative, a US artist Alexander Calder embellished a 480 hp BMW
3.0 CSL in absolute colours and gave it elegantly winding surfaces in
1975. Hervé Poulain himself gathering this automobile during a 24 Hours of Le Mans
in 1975. The pattern combined by New Yorker Frank Stella in the
following year likewise lined adult on a starting grid during Le Mans in
1976. Pop Art fable Andy Warhol followed fit by immortalising his
grant in an pattern with a rarely particular approach. By
contrariety with his predecessors, he did not initial erect a true
scale indication of a car before handing over a final pattern to his
assistants. In 1979, he himself embellished a BMW M1 Group 4 automobile
from start to finish. He achieved this in only 28 minutes. When
a camera teams arrived to film a action, a pattern was almost
completed. Only a final brushstrokes could be documented on film.
