A little bit of history...

L'art et I'automobile is owned by Jacques Vaucher, who from the age of four was

the unofficial test driver of pedal and motorized cars for "Eureka,” a toy

manufactured in France owned by his godfather. This fascination with speed continued,

as did his dream of being a race car driver. His schooling at Winfield, France’s

famous racing school, lead Jacques to different forms of racing.

At the New York Showroom of Ferrari importer Luigi Chinetti. Jacques turned the

Showroom into a gallery, covering the walls with automotive art to complement the

moving sculptures displayed on the floor.

Now with somewhat slower reflexes, Jacques continues to follow his passion as

the owner of America's preeminent automotive art gallery and auction house.

In the extensive collection, you will find the most important artists and automobilia

from the 1890s to date. As its name implies, l’art et l’automobile has historically

focused on automotive collectibles, however, recently they have expanded their

selection and have begun to offer impressive collection of motorcycle, nautical,

and aeronautical related items.

For the neophyte collector or the one without the time to seek every individual

piece on their own, Jacques has on numerous occasions provided consultation

and decorating services. Just give him a budget, some ideas of what you might

like, how big the space is, and he will do the rest. If a customized automotive

library is what you are seeking, he can also amass enough books to fill all your

shelves.

In addition to selling through an online store, a gallery, and at exhibitions around

the United States and the world, I'art et I'automobile holds online auctions annually

that offer bidders an opportunity to acquire a vast selection of automobllia.

These auctions are held exclusively online and stay open for several weeks;

interested bidders must offer at least the minimum bid on any given lot and are

given as many opportunities as they like to increase their bid before the auction

closes. Bids may be submItted online, in person, or by phone, mail or fax.

Many of these treasures are acquired by Jacques, whIle others are sold on consignment.

Collectors interested in viewing what l’art et l’automobile has to offer may visit the

website at arteauto.com, find Jacques in person at any number of events annually,

or schedule an appointment

to see the gallery/barn in Harper, Texas. With a large current inventory of

thousands of items of automobilia, there is something on offer for every

automotive enthusiast and collector–regardless of why they collect.

All the best - Stephen
