Fitzpatrick and Kaufman Buick Art


Recommended Posts

While most noted for their art work for Pontiac, Art Fitzpatrick and Van Kaufman's earlier years were spent doing artwork for Buick, Van doing the work of the scenes and people and Art painting the Buicks onto them.  I've collected most all the '54 thru '56 Buick ads done by them. In order to really focus on the true artwork and the beauty of the subject Buicks,  I am presenting just the artwork without the advertising and will ask anyone wishing to post additional works to please do the same. Also if I have mistakenly posted works known not to be by Art and Van please advise and I will remove.

One of the latest I've seen that I'm pretty sure was done by them, 1971

and I was surprised to find that they actually did this one,  used in I am thinking a 1953 ad depicting the new Fireball  V-8 engine. Love their elaborate use of chrome, I am sure new car buyers wondered "Why doesn't my engine look like that"   Odd too that the plug spark plug covers appear to be from '54 with the wires exiting from the rear top vs the rear end as was the case for the '53 322's.

During the seventies, GM's Bob Lutz apparently observed how the artwork of Fitzpatrick and Kaufman was working so well for Pontiac to increase sales that he hired them to produce ads for Opel.
