    Hi guys,
    what do you think of the Brook Stevens Studebaker for 1965 artwork on Ebay at the moment.

    Is that the original painted artwork or a print of it ??

    Hello Greg,

    I won the art work on EBAY that you are referring to. Each are nicely framed, well preserved and are quite large. They are the real deal.

                Sorry about that Studedude. This was my first time posting pictures. I will look into what caused this.

                    The seller told me he bought them from Bill Moser and that the art work was on his office wall at Studebaker of Canada until they closed the doors. Bill was the Studebaker Automotive Div. President and Manufacturing V.P. This is all I could find on the internet in reference to Bill Moser:

                    MOESER, William Alan (1921-2004)
                    Died peacefully, surrounded by family, at Toronto Grace Hospital, on
                    April 9th at age 83. Predeceased by his wife of 59 years May
                    (LINDSAY), and daughter Sheila ROY. Bill was a devoted and cherished
                    husband, father, father-in-law, Poppa, uncle and friend.
                    Bill will be deeply missed by his son Doug (and Catherine Dawson
                    MOESER, of Cincinnati), his daughter Lindsay (and John McLAUGHLIN, of
                    Toronto), as well as by grandchildren Heather ROY (and Anne ROBINSON),
                    Colin ROY (and Jennifer Shelswell ROY), Geoffrey MOESER (and Stacie
                    STEINBERGER), Andrew MOESER, Fraser McLAUGHLIN and Graham McLAUGHLIN,
                    great-grand-daughter Lauren Sheila ROY (and two more great-grand-
                    children expected this spring), and his many nieces, nephews and good
                    Friends.
                    Bill MOESER had a full lifetime of accomplishments, which he enjoyed
                    with a wonderful sense of humour, and great generosity of spirit. Bill
                    was born in Toronto and attended Oakwood Collegiate before graduating
                    in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1943. He
                    loved Canada, becoming an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy
                    immediately after graduation, and spending the duration of the war in
                    convoy duty on the North Atlantic. He loved automobiles, especially
                    old ones, new ones and fast ones. He loved hockey, playing in high
                    school and for U of T, and still at age 75 played hockey
                    enthusiastically with his grandchildren. Above all he loved his
                    family. His children benefited immensely as he led them around the
                    world to live in France and then Australia. To his grandchildren he
                    was their beloved 'Pop', who with wit and wisdom always encouraged
                    them to follow their dreams. Bill had many cherished Friends with whom
                    he had great fun, and maintained close relationships throughout his
                    lifetime.
                    Bill also loved his community, and was a natural leader in his many
                    areas of commitment. At Massey-Ferguson from 1945-1962 he held
                    positions of increasing responsibility before moving to Studebaker
                    Canada as Vice-President. In 1967 he moved to Kitchener where he was
                    President of Lear Siegler Canada until his retirement in 1985. He was
                    a long-time Director of Budd Canada, and served on the Boards of
                    numerous other corporations. He served in a leadership capacity in
                    many organizations in the Kitchener-Waterloo area including: President
                    of the Rotary Club of Kitchener, Governor of Wilfrid Laurier
                    University, Governor of Conestoga College, Director of Westmount Golf
                    and Country Club, and Director of the Kitchener and Waterloo Community
                    Foundation.

                        Without wishing to be nosy, what does such artwork go for, it'd be too costly to send down here I imagine,not that I need to spend any more money on eBAY at present.

                            Hi Michael,
                            nice one.

                            As a matter of interest, is the artwork an original goache drawing, or a print of the final artwork for Studebaker management. It did not seem too clear in the description.

                            Artwork price is a funny thing. I think the No 1 collectable in the world is art.

                            You can walk down the high street anywhere in the world and pay $500.00 for any rubbish framed. So the price paid for something from Broook Stevens gallery to hang on a Studebaker lovers wall, has nothing much to do with the money. It is the enjoyment of looking at it and knowing it's pedigree. Genuine automotive art I doubt ever really comes on the market anyway, so it will always hold or increase in value. (In my opinion)
